Two Things About....

The Orenda by Joseph Boyden

One -If you had to watch Dr Who from behind the sofa when you were a kid then beware – there is a fair amount of claret in this book – it’s the most magnificent and spectacular spillage of claret you’ll ever read about… but there is a lot of it – so clear a space behind the sofa before you start to read it!

Two -The three main characters Snow Falls, Bird and Crow are so special and so amazing that you could happily go for a beer with the three of them after work on a Friday night – and I mean EVERY Friday night!!!

Two Things About....

Near To The Wild Heart by Clarice Lispector

One – There isn’t really a plot – in fact there isn’t anything other than 194 pages full of words and phrases that are simply brilliant! (though they don’t actually add up to a story)

Two – It will teach you that the sun does not simply rise in the morning and shine down into your room – no, no, no, no, no, the sun “insinuates its way between your sheets”. Now isn’t that a reason to get up and get on with life!
