New books have been added to My Reading Table with reasons why.
Also added, a brief explanation of how this table works; likely a description for how all reading tables work.
The additions to My Reading Table:
- The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters
- Scoundrel Time by Lillian Hellman
- Katherine Mansfield Notebooks: Complete Edition edited by Margaret Scott
- Prague in Danger The Years of German Occupation, 1939-45: Memories and History, Terror and Resistance, Theater and Jazz, Film and Poetry, Politics and War by Peter Demetz
- Bridge of Sighs by Richard Russo (This was briefly removed from My Reading Table and on the Currently Reading list. Now it’s back on.)
The removals from My Reading Table:
The Collector by John Fowles
I picked this up last night, after reading The Cry of the Sloth. The first novel by the author of The Magus and The French Lieutenant’s Woman published in 1963.
The dust jacket flap of the fourth edition says, “Rarely does a publisher introduce a novel of such devastating power.” This is now on the Currently Reading list.
Putting books to be reviewed on My Reading Table doesn’t mesh with the way the table works; hence the removal of these two new releases, soon to hit Currently Reading:
- Ulysses and Us: The Art of Everyday Life in Joyce’s Masterpiece by Declan Kiberd
- The Children’s Book by A. S. Byatt
