DICK DAN HEYADA X560 | ADVOCATE.COM …The Queen of the Tambourine. This novel by British writer Jane Gardam, who is less well known on this side of the Atlantic than she should be, is luscious, funny prose you could stir into a Sunday punch to inebriate everyone on the veranda. Also look for Old Filth and a wonderful teen novel, A Long Way From Verona. Hers is as individual an authorial voice as you’ll read this year.
