Julep Street

Julep Street, by Craig Lancaster

I have first-up to admit to bias: I am a huge Craig Lancaster fan (Edward is my hero), trained as a journalist, a bit of a cynic and a dog-lover. So what was not to love about Julep Street!! I adored it. I was in awe of Lancaster’s effortless prose. His incredibly taut writing is nonetheless poetic; each word perfectly chosen and each sentence beautifully crafted.  No surprise to find out he’s a journalist! And this book draws on his knowledge of journos, newsrooms and newspaper owners. It is not a happy story as Lancaster takes us on a journey that seems to be spiralling downward towards an inevitable ending. The incredible relationship between ex-newspaper editor, Carson McCullough, and his yellow Lab Hector will have you laughing with delight and in floods of tears.  Read it!  5 stars.
