I found Milkman at Tanner's Books

Winner of the 2018 Man Booker Prize
A rule breaker, Burns doesn't name any of her primary characters but a few of her minor characters are named. And the 'Milkman' has nothing to do with milk--not in the liquid sense of the word. Without naming characters, you may wonder how Burns welcomes the reader into the book. The narrator's voice is so strong that I had no choice but to keep reading.
This is Anna Burns' fourth published book. And all I can say is, "More please!"

Sharing my author journey...
During the year, I work on my writing but allow room for other distractions. But in summer I retreat to my writer's cave.
What will I focus on this year?
I have work-in-progress that is begging for attention--including a middle-grade novel. And I plan to continue to unearth gold amongst my old computer files.
Don't worry. This blog will continue to be a priority.
Wishing you a sun-filled, fun summer.
