Whose Line Is It Anyway?

Reconciliation

By

Salt Publishing 300pp £8.99 order from our bookshop

Reconciliation opens with an intriguing apology by the author ‘for the extent to which my characters fail to resemble their real-life models’. This indicates a central concern of Guy Ware’s novel: namely, how the fiction writer appropriates ‘facts’ to create a story. It’s a preoccupation that informs the book’s highly original narrative structure.
