Park by the River, by Barney Farmer (Wrecking Ball Press, 2021)

An isolated elderly man takes daily walks during a pandemic through his local park. Barney Farmer’s third novel (after Drunken Baker and Coketown) is his best yet: more melancholic than splenetic this time out, but no less angry at the state of the world and the plight of those adrift within it. Recommended.

My own books here, if that’s your thing. Newest is noir thriller East of England.
