reviewed Still Life by Sarah Winman

Quaint nostalgia

4 stars

Winman has a knack for vivid and sweeping descriptions. Nostalgic and beautiful if sometimes bordering on pastiche, the narration can be a bit self-indulgent in that "upper middle class American tourist in Europe" way. The main characters are easy to fall in love with though, and the prevalence and normalcy of queer relationships is refreshing. Content warnings for depictions/descriptions of war.
