    Alice Robinson is having doubts about her job on a fashionable London art magazine, and her current way of life. Agreeing to house sit for her parents, she moves back to the suburban streets of her childhood, a world of Girl Guides, Tudorbethan houses and blossom trees. She reasesses her priorities and wonders how do we connect? And what are the maps and manuals that show us how to live today?

It is to novels as good studio movies are to movies—extremely well-made, satisfying if you have a taste for [a] genre occasionally excellent. Storms, e. Disclosure: The N.

    Mallon brings historical figures to life. Landfall book prose is a pleasure. A gallery of political and media figures, from the widowed Nancy Reagan to the philandering John Edwards to the brilliantly contrarian Christopher Hitchens, bring the novel and the era to life. Landfall is fascinating. Even grading on a curve with Trump and his administration at one end, that seems strange.

    Landfall is fascinating. And the ending is worth every page that precedes it. Landfall is Landfall book culmination of a contemporary epic whose previous volumes Watergate and Finale have been repeatedly singled out as outstanding novels of the years in which they appeared. Mallon is a master of dialogue, spinning lines for his characters that sound exactly like what you would expect them to say, only more so.
