Pickle Me This

Book in the post Alert

How exciting! A book in the post is due to arrive this week. It’s my first used book purchased online. I have bought The Writing Life by Annie Dillard, which the more attentive might recognised as being a book I already owned but left behind in Japan. I am writing my final paper for one of my courses on it, and I am quite interested to see how my perspective on it has changed since I last read it, as my attitude toward writing is quite different now. In other book news, I just read “Judgement Day” by Penelope Lively, and I think it my favourite book of hers that I have read. Also reading AN Wilson’s “After the Victorians: The Decline of Britain in the World”, which is long long long but full of the most excellent stories.

Siri Hustvedt (of the wonderful “What I Loved”) is profiled. Her comment that with her essays and even her fiction, she believes in “rigorous honesty”. Take that jab Frey! February Poetry workshop in The Guardian. Ivor tells us how to love our cities online.

This weekend’s highlights include brunch with Fiona I et al, and then dress shopping with Miss Katie Doering Sunday afternoon. Have I mentioned that I am a bridesmaid?

Husband and I just had small altercation about me playing “When I See You Smile” by Bad English in the living room.
