I loved Becky Blake s Proof I Was Here In fact I think it is in my top five for the year and one of my favourites in a long timeThe writing is uniuely precise and succinct and yet expansively evocative It feels uncluttered and clean while still providing a range of detail that captures tone and intent skillfully Sprinkled throughout are lists for lack of a fitting word that describe places and experiences in terms that engage the senses fully A small example the finer details of the city leaping out at me for a moment the lacy edge of a red fan in a shop window the sweet smoky smell of hot chocolate and cigarettes as a caf door open and closed I felt like I was thereThe book is described as a coming of age story set largely in Barcelona but it felt like much than that to me It was an existential kind of self discovery It opens the eyes reminds us that people are complex that we should be compassionate have an open mind and to live presently letting go of what we can t control The book jacket description left me ambivalent about whether I d like this story it didn t sound like a story I d relate to but having read it now I m sure it s a story we can all relate to I enjoyed it so much become so engrossed in the characters that I forced myself to ration my reading allowing myself to read it in the evenings only so I would have the story with me a little longer There is no better feeling than reading a book and missing the characters the day after you ve finished the story and still wondering about it a week or later This is a must read
