Book review by C.E. James – No One

No One by John Hughes

A dreamlike entry into the world of “The Other”.

The refugee and an indigenous city dweller – a view into the hidden life both physical and of the mind – difficult issues of victims and guilt and the “festering” relationship with indigenous people.

Old crimes lingering, leaving emotional and mental scars.

It is beautifully written but leaves one with a sense that “no one knows what to do with ghosts that are real”.

An important piece of writing. Difficult issues but worth reading.
