"Freya"

Screen Shot 2017-12-18 at 1.53.10 PM

This novel by Anthony Quinn, published last month, easily slots into my top 10 of the year.

It's the story of Freya Wyley, an Englishwoman, and it follows her from her service as a teenaged Wren in World War II into the 1960s.

A wonderful character, idiosyncratic and believable.

Who will play her in the movie, I wonder?

I'm thinking Freya Mavor as the younger version and Naomi Watts as the mature journalist.

Don't take my word for it: read the book's opening pages here.
