    Story
    (66)

    Following years of lonely political exile in Western Europe, Ka, a middle-aged poet, returns to Istanbul to attend his mother's funeral. Only partly recognizing this place of his cultured, middle-class youth, he is even more disoriented by news of strange events in the wider country: a wave of suicides among girls forbidden to wear their head scarves at school.

    "Excellent"
    Overall

    Secularist vs. Islamic Fundamentalist, with an imperfect and complex man in the middle.

    Story

    Beginning in 1974 and ending with the fading of Thatcher's government in 1996, The Northern Clemency is Philip Hensher's epic portrait of an entire era, a novel concerned with the lives of ordinary people and history on the move. Set in Sheffield, it charts the relationship between two families: Malcolm and Katherine Glover and their three children; and their neighbours the Sellers family, newly arrived from London so that Bernie can pursue his job with the Electricity Board.

    Kathleen says: "Boring people behaving badly"
    "Poor Production"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the novel. But the production was annoying. The volume would shoot up too high for my speakers, then drop too low to understand. I guess I'll have to watch out for Whole Story audiobooks here.
