The Sunday Salon
I’m back! I’ve had a busy few weeks, therefore not much time for blogging. However, I spent most of my afternoon yesterday writing—first a CME proposal for class and then eight, yes eight reviews! So you’ll start to see them pop up here over the next few weeks.
I’ve had a lot going on in my life recently, so I’ve been reading a lot more than usual (probably as an escape from reality). I’m back on a Virago Modern Classics binge; now I’m reading Ordinary Families, by E. Arnot Robinson, a novel about a quintessential English family between the wars. So far this month I’ve finished The World My Wilderness (Rose Macaulay) and One Fine Day (Mollie Panter-Downes). This week I also read Penelope Fitzgerald’s The Bookshop, about a woman who opens a bookshop in a small English seaside town, despite opposition from the locals. Sublime!
