liv: Bookshelf labelled: Caution. Hungry bookworm (bookies)
Author: Penelope Fitzgerald

Details: (c) Penelope Fitzgerald 1978; Pub Flamingo 1989; ISBN 0-00-65434-5

Verdict: The bookshop is well crafted but very downbeat.

Reasons for reading it: I can't remember whether Fitzgerald is an author I like, or someone with a similar name to an author I like, or someone I've just picked up positive vibes about, but anyway. A vague positive feeling about the author combined with a very enticing title led me to this book.

How it came into my hands: RS has a big hamper of English books that her expat community have read and no longer want, and was very insistent that her Thanksgiving guests should take lots of these books away with them.

Soundbite

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
