"I'm taking this opportunity to introduce one of my favourite
(not specifically LGBT) authors to the group. Case Histories is the first in
a short series of novels she wrote featuring private investigator
Jackson Brodie, which were adapted by the BBC for TV.
I feel it is more than a simple crime novel, due to her in
depth exploration of the characters and powerful literary style.
"I love her rich, humane characterisations and her
understanding of how people see the world differently. This book
features an LGBT main character and I thought this character's journey
was particularly interesting as they do not start to explore their
sexuality until later in life."
