Drabble news

Today’s gloom dissipated somewhat as I was writing the post below, was inspired to do a google search for Margaret Drabble (as I do from time-to-time, being a Drabble devotee), and discovered that she has a new book out, a short story collection called A Day in the Life of a Smiling Woman. (I found it via this NPR story/profile). Delightful! The first new Drabble fiction since 2007’s The Sea Lady! Her most recent book is non-fiction The Pattern in the Carpet, which I read almost exactly two years ago (and discovered the same way I just found this book). How wonderful to have a gift just fall out of the sky. In even better news, I am quite happy to read that she has reconsidered her decision to stop writing fiction.

    On your recommendation Kerry and because I’m a Drabble fan too,I picked up Smiling Woman. Exquisite stories, to the point that I want to either EAT them or BE them(especially the ones nearing the end of the book.) Thanks for the hot tip. J

      Oh! So nice to know there is goodness to look forward to (as, if all goes according to plan, I shall be receiving this for my birthday next month…).
