I am a big fan of the quirky in literature, where things contain a good dose of unexpected magical realism, or where a perspective which deviates from the norm has been used to good effect, for example. I am looking for some recommendations of quirky and exciting books to help me through the dissertation period – whether fiction or non-fiction, I don’t mind – and thought that you lovely fellow readers might be able to help me.
What have you read recently which you would describe as quirky? Which book(s) features your favourite unusual perspective, or narrative voice? Thank you in advance!
