Still Life – Sarah Winman – 17.01.22

This is a beautiful, epic, exuberant and joyful story and I loved it!

During WW2, a young British soldier is stationed in Italy when he saves the life of an Italian man. The book follows his fortunes and those of the people he loves as he returns to London, and later back to Italy as the man he saved leaves him his home and everything in it.

It’s about love and life and family and community and I just found it so uplifting and beautiful and so evocative of what it would be like to find your place in the world somewhere as lovely as Florence.
