For the third year in a row, Naomi of the Consumed by Ink book review blog and I have guest-hosted each other’s reviews and my review of The Afrikaner by Arianna Dagnino can be found there. Her reviews are remarkable for their insight and perceptiveness of a novel’s strengths and weaknesses. I encourage you to follow her reviews of CanLit. Often, we review the same books and it’s fun to see what each other takes away from a book.
As for The Afrikaner, it is a superb book, and I am putting it on my 2020 longlist for Fiction for a “The Very Best! Book Award.
Author Allan Hudson posted this comment on his FB page: “The Afrikaner is one of the finest novels I’ve read in some time.”
