      Moreover, I will allow myself to be outrageously opinionated and blunt: Solenoid is the greatest surrealist novel ever written. I can imagine it firmly sitting at the top of a gigantic totem pole sculpture built out of the debris representing the evolutionary chain kick-started by the publication of Breton and Soupault’s The Magnetic Fields.   Historical fiction seems to hit its stride early in the year, introducing the world to new takes on old favorites in history. Whether you’re looking to ring in the warm weather with a seasoned favorite or hoping to explore something new, we’ve rounded up our most anticipated historical fiction novels for early , spanning January to April.

      Something of a beautifully written deep character study over a period of societal change, and don’t be afraid to make it surrealist if possible. Lit Hub recommends: If you haven’t read it, I think you’d enjoy Kazuo Ishiguro’s The Remains of the Day, his subtle, gorgeous Booker Prize-winning novel about an English butler in the late 50s. I'd never heard of Lee Miller prior to this novel, but I love s Paris, so I had to pick up this book. Now that I have, I'm wondering why I've not encountered this woman before. Lee Miller lived a life full of art and fame - she was first an American model, then an artist and photographer and even a 4/5(3).

    The work is an example of a palimpsest novel, whereby the narrator retells a story that happened in the past, with the perspective and insight of the present. Sweet Days of Discipline by Fleur Jaeggy Fleur Jaeggy’s account of a young girl in a boarding school in post-war Switzerland is an unnerving portrayal of childhood : Matthew Janney.   The surrealist form of the novel and it's passionate portrayal of female sexuality (which is quite unusual for a genre largely dominated by men) makes it, for me, all the more interesting.
