For Emma from Book Around the Corner.
I had a difficult time narrowing the choices down to just two, but in the end (on Xmas morning), I selected these two:
Straight Man by Richard Russo
No Beast So Fierce by Edward Bunker
For Brian from Babbling Books:
Brian likes his books to contain a bit of philosophy to chew over so…
Victor Hugo’s Ninety-Three
The Plague by Albert Camus
For Lisa from ANZ Litlovers Litblog:
For Lisa’s love of French culture:
La Première Gorgée de Bière et Autres Plaisirs Minuscules by Philippe Delerm
For Stu from Winston’s Dad:
Stu likes books in translation, and as he’s read this author before, he should really like this one (we hope it gives you a few laughs)
All Yours by Claudia Piñeiro
Merry Xmas to all my readers!
