December Must Read: Umbrella

Will Self's novel, Umbrella, was shortlisted for this year's Man Booker prize but we are still anxiously awaiting it to be published stateside.  The wait ends on December 11.  This sprawling modernist novel tells the story of life in a 1970s London psychiatric hospital and has been likened to James Joyce's Ulysses.  At 400 pages, this unbroken stream of consciousness, is certainly not the easiest book to read but it is well worth the effort!
