Books I found in a box on Albany Avenue

I swear, the spines aren’t even cracked, and how their hues complement one another. I’m so happy to finally own a copy of The Girls, which I loved so much when I read it a few years ago, and then a book by Ali Smith who I love, but I haven’t read this one yet, and finally What We All Long For by Dionne Brand, which won the Toronto Book Award in 2006. Beautiful. And can you imagine if I’d dared to pass the box by? Five more minutes, and the whole thing would have been drenched with rain.

    Lori Lansen’s The Girls! Great book. I’ve read all her novels and recently finished The Wife’s Tale. She writes about extraordinary people in such an ordinary way.
