Circling the Sun

Posted By Sarah Goddin, Monday, April 6, 2015

Circling the Sun by Paula McLain 7/28/15

Paula McLain does an exceptional job of capturing Beryl Markham and her singular life, as well as painting a vivid portrait of Kenya and a host of other noteworthy characters, including Karen Blixen, Dennys Finch-Hatton and the two British princes, Harry and David. I've been a fan of Beryl Markham's since reading her memoir, West With the Night, in the '80s, and have also read whatever I could about her. This is a beautifully written, authentic novel of the acclaimed horse trainer, pioneer aviator, and gifted writer, about whom Hemingway famously wrote ”She can write rings around all of us who consider ourselves as writers . . . It is really a bloody wonderful book.”
