I am officially in love with Michael Frayn. Head-long was the first, then Skios, and now on my phone My Father’s Fortune which seems to be auto biographical. And all a pleasure.
Yup, Soy Sauce for Beginners by Kristen Chen had what I love. A good story, a new place and soy sauce.
As I struggle to make sense of art, its importance, its value, its purpose, I fell into Head-long and so much started to fall into place and become clear. As you follow the plight of a painting, this novel brings you into detail and process and ponder.
I enjoyed the read… not certain i would recommend it. But i wouldn’t caution you off either.
Im loving reading The Gentleman In Moscow. I usually wait to share until I have finished a book. But hey, Its my blog and I wanted to share.
The most fun I’ve had reading since Ella Minnow Pee. In this short novel the Queen finds herself , at the age of 80, reading for pleasure for the first time in her life. We follow the irritation of the court, The Queens quirky character, and her interactions. A quick read, and a delight.
