    One thought on “A Mild Suicide”

    1. Characteristic of the best fiction A Mild Suicide does not give people what they want. Indeed, what people want, is at the centre of this work, as are the weak characters, who have the "wants", that populate the narrative. Something you would think you would not want, but the characters are "weak" because they are weak characters. "Weakness" is the literary strength of this work as the author is powerfully aware.

    2. I enjoyed the book, with its subject of adultery and Edinburgh setting too (I'm a big fan of reading books set in places I know well). It was just a shame it was written by an author I presume to be American, with American & English main characters.

Adam Mars-Jones‘A Mild Suicide tests boundaries and invites uncomfortable questions… Christina Koning’s ability to create a dream-like atmosphere is almost uncannily intense.’ Scotsman‘Koning… writes beau [...]

    4. Having met at a party, Saul and Catherine are soon enfolded in a web of sexual exploration. Against a backdrop of mid-1970s Edinburgh, Saul and Catherine play out the drama of their affair, a duet which becomes a trio with the arrival of Saul's wife Virginia.

    5. I found the characters to be reprehensible and generally unpleasant which coloured my reading of this. Though perhaps literary by virtue of its references, I think I'm too snooty for this book.
