Book Review – The Authenticity Project

Cover image for The authenticity project / Clare Pooley.

By Clare Pooley

This story is about a solitary green notebook that brings together six strangers and leads to unexpected friendship and even love. ‘Everybody lies about their lives. What would happen if you shared the truth?’ This is the question that Julian Jessop, an eccentric, seventy-nine artist, poses within a pale green exercise book that he labels The Authenticity Project, before leaving it behind in Monica’s Café. The truth in life is not as beautiful as you expect, or ugly sometimes. Only if you accept it, can you start to improve it. Be real and sincere, be caring and loving, the world around you will be a better one.

Book Review – Adults

By Emma Jane Unsworth

If you’re after something witty to make you laugh I recommend you Adults by Emma Jane Unsworth. In this book the author depicts a realistic problematic and humorous picture of our contemporary disease of social media addiction and its pressure, its pitfalls and repercussions through the life of 35 year old Jenny. Her other novel Animal which was published in 2014 and filmed in 2019 is a great fun reading as well.
