Pickle Me This

In addition

I’m now reading The Believers by Zoe Heller, who I’ve loved a long long time. On the weekend I read Anne Fleming’s Pool-Hopping, which, in addition to being swim-lit, was a stellar collection of stories. In light of her latest book Life Sentences, the remarkable Laura Lippman’s top ten memorable memoirs. Today I was sent a link to Based On Books, an interesting review site of books-based films. The Flying Troutmans is named to The Orange Prize longlist. Charlotte Ashley’s Tangential to a History of Reading points to significant flaws in Sydney Henderson’s literary character. And on literature and returning soldiers.

    Yay! I’m glad you got Pool Hopping. I read her novel Anomaly first (which is expanded from one of the short stories in Pool Hopping), which lead me back to the short stories. Do pick that one up too, if you’ve not read it yet. Fleming’s a real treasure.

    Anomaly was my favourite story of the bunch, so I would be interested in checking out the novel. Thanks again for the recommendation.
