Evening Book Group - Golden Hill: A Novel of Old New York by Francis Spufford
Fiction. 320 pages. 2017.
From NY Times review: “Golden Hill” is [Spufford's] first novel, and not a typical first novel (mumbled quasi-memoir) but an ebullient, freewheeling historical fiction set in 18th-century New York City three decades before the Revolutionary War. I read it in what felt like 10 minutes, and it left my mind feeling like it had been kissed by some sunburn. Its action is so vivid that you seem to be consuming (imagine Wolf Blitzer’s voice here) breaking news. Delirious storytelling backfilled with this much intelligence is a rare and happy sight.
