New Book

Our next Lit Wits book is M.G. Vassanji's The In Between World of Vikram Lall and I am starting to get into it. I think I like it. It is not an easy read but like A Fine Balance, worth the effort.

I found this wonderful quotation:

Books...are like lobster shells, we surround ourselves with 'em, then we grow out of 'em and leave 'em behind, as evidence of our earlier stages of development.
Dorothy L. Sayers, The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club, 1928
English mystery author (1893 - 1957)

No comments:

Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song,
A medley of extemporanea;
And love is a thing that can never go wrong;
And I am Marie of Romania.
Dorothy Parker, Not So Deep as a Well (1937)
