Fludd by Hilary Mantel

Quirky, funny and spooky, Hilary Mantel is up on my shelf with others of her ilk: Flannery O’Connor, Grace Paley, Muriel Spark…Like my favorite writers, she shows human nature at its obliquest. Is she condemning religion? Forgiving it? Relishing its oddities? Are all of her characters nuts? Or is that the true state of all of us? Her plot both shouts and whispers. Try her. If you like it, AH! Lucky you, you then have many more novels to devour.
