Remember the Datsun Cherry

Black Swan Green: A Novel by David Mitchell

Reviewed by M. John Harrison
Times Literary Supplement

"As any boy knows, three tunnels run under the Malvern Hills. The first conducts a British Rail line. The second is a Government fallout shelter, the entrance to which can be found in the garden centre at Woolworth's in Great Malvern. The third is the interesting one. It is the one the Romans built to invade Hereford; and it is missing. If you found it, you would certainly get your picture on the front page of the Malvern Gazetteer. On a beautiful April morning, Jason Taylor, thirteen years old, entradista of both the exterior and interior landscapes, sets out towards Pinnacle Hill to do just that." Read the entire Times Literary Supplement review.

    Review almost left nothing to read, but the "how" leaves me curious enough to
    read it.
