If nobody speaks of remarkable things

What an amazing piece of writing. Even more so for a first novel.
The author Jon McGregor grew up in Norfolk (my first University) and lives in Nottingham (not so far from where I last lived), neither place or time close enough for our paths to have knowingly crossed (not unlike those people from nearby streets who are not in that street at the time).
The prose is extraordinary. I am reminded of that other remarkable first novel (and equally spellbinding prose-poetry) “The Mariner’s Star” by Candida Clark
