Its more leisurely weekend brunch sessions (family and dog-friendly) offer a chance to admire the handsome building and linger over its excellent food. Little Window’s Moorish/Levantine dishes (shakshuka with curds or morcilla, eggs and romesco sauce on sourdough), explode with flavour, while the Wolfhouse Kitchen offers more mainstream satisfaction (rare-breed breakfast sandwiches, toast and homemade peanut butter), alongside an ace east Asian breakfast bun of kimchi, fried eggs and sriracha. As brunch turns to lunch, Tender Cow’s meatier dishes (steak, eggs and mojo verde, oxtail on toast with smoked feta and horseradish, £8) come into their own, as do Blackjack Brewery’s craft beer bar and Reserve Wines’ kiosk.

In 1980, Marilynne Robinson published her first novel, Housekeeping, which was hailed as an instant classic. For the next 25 years she published no fiction, but several essays and two non-fiction books: Mother Country, a controversial account of the disaster at what is now Sellafield , and The Death of Adam, a collection of provocative polemical essays. In 2004, she unexpectedly published a second novel, Gilead, which won the Pulitzer prize, and was widely extolled. Four years later she returned to the fictional terrain of Gilead, Iowa, with Home, which won the Orange prize for fiction. And now comes Lila, the third Gilead novel; it is a finalist for this year’s National Book award, announced this month, and many people consider it a favourite to win. After just four novels, Robinson is frequently named one of America’s most significant writers; the Gilead novels in particular have been heaped with praise, regularly appearing on lists of the greatest contemporary … [Read more...] about Marilynne Robinson’s Lila – a great achievement in US fiction
