Yesterday I told you about the mini Margaret Atwood gem ‘The Labrador Fiasco’ that I had grabbed off the shelves at my mother’s over the long weekend. I actually hadn’t stopped there and had picked up another four short(ish) books that I honestly felt I could ‘squeeze in’ over the weekend too. How I do not know as there were ten under tens to keep my eyes on, lots of family to catch up with and walking, pubbing etc, etc. In my head though I thought it was possible. Once I finally admitted defeat and was all down trodden my mother decided I could borrow them (this is as rare as me loaning a book) and so I thought I would share them with you all.
The Pigeon – Patrick Suskind
The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea – Yukio Mishima
The Only Problem – Muriel Spark
In Between The Sheets – Ian McEwan
Then when I came back there were some delightful parcels awaiting me which had some gems inside them so I thought that I would share them all with you in case So without further ado here they are (sorry about the pic quality my third blackberry in a year – am a bit narked – is playing up)…
Hodd – Adam Thorpe
The Odd Women – George Gissing
The Book of Disquiet – Fernando Pessoa
The Arsenic Century – James C. Whorton
The Pleasure Seekers – Tishani Doshi
