I realize in reading other blogs and things that I haven't done a book review in yonks- and I have been reading quite a bit. This is actually funny- read on- you'll see what I mean. See what I did there?
But first I will share my latest FO, which happens to be a pair of socks.
Straycat socks. I had so much fun with these- and I think they'll look great with Birks. I know this is an in-progress shot, but I really did finish. Honest Injun.
Margaret Drabble and had read a few of hers before. I Wiki-peed it for you- she is A.S. Byatt's sister.
So if a few were good- then were they all good? I ordered copies from my beloved Awesome books- most of them were in the bargain bin, and it probably cost less for all of these than one new bestseller. So I had a binge of sorts, and they were all great. She has been criticized for writing books that there aren't alot of conclusions to, but her writing is intelligent, and the people have quirks and alot of realism. I particularly enjoyed "The Pure Gold Baby"- which was published in 2013- so she's been around a long time.
I would ask her, given the chance- why she wears her corset at night. I'm pretty sure our ancestors took them off every chance they had, and I know they didn't sleep in them. She also seems to be obsessed with the word "quotidien" which means "daily" in English. But other than that- this is interesting. A modern insight into time travel as a chosen lifestyle.
I like the authors style of writing- it's almost like a novel- but all the facts are there and all your questions are answered. I will read more of his for sure.
