    One thought on “A Season In Sinji”

    1. Rich writing. Interesting, well developed characters. An interlibrary loan from a university library that encourages me to request another ILL by the author. Wish I knew more about cricket, but that lack didn't detract much from the overall satisfaction of the book.Some quotes :"It was an act like his appearance. Although he was tall and stooped, he wasn't anything like as clumsy as he made himself out to be be he could switch his flat feet and his stammer on and off as it suited him. Sometimes [...]

    2. Not sure why this was in the Comedy category of 1000 Novels. I do understand the "human comedy" but I found this a little harrowing. Compelling read, and my second favorite of the 3 novels that I have read by this author.

    3. J L Carr wrote six novels, each quirkily different, each springing from an aspect of his life and experience. A Season in Sinji follows a love triangle (strictly speaking, a love quadrilateral in this case with three young RAF men vying for the love of a young woman) from one of their postings to their time at a West African flying boat base during the Second World War.

    4. * 1000 novels everyone must read: the definitive listSelected by the Guardian's Review team and a panel of expert judges, this list includes only novels – no memoirs, no short stories, no long poems – from any decade and in any language. Originally published in thematic supplements – love, crime, comedy, family and self, state of the nation, science fiction and fantasy, war and travel – they appear here for the first time in a single list.

    5. right up there with other close encounters with the war, like milligan (although there's no reason to believe this is autobiographical) or thirkell. short, pointed and funny, also as economic a portrait of personal isolation as i've read in a long time. Carr is new to me (thank you, guardian books) but i'll be seeking out his other books.
