Year of the tiger

I’m now reading The Tiger in the Tiger Pit by Janette Turner Hospital, which I picked out of cardboard box on the sidewalk about three years ago. (The only other book I’ve read by Hospital was Orpheus Lost in 2007.) This book has been sitting on my shelf for about three years because it’s a manky paperback with a dated cover design, because it’s something I feel I should read but have not really been compelled to do so. And between all the other books I’ve found on sidewalks, and other manky paperbacks I’ve picked up from second-hand booksales, these books are starting to add up. I would like to spend my summer mostly re-reading, and so I’m going to make a point of getting through these books before then. They should yield some surprises– Excellent Women was once one of these novels, and now I am head over heels in love with Barbara Pym.
