It's hysterically gloomy out, grey from here to infinity, and I've finished the novel that had me climbing into bed at eight o'clock (Someone at a Distance by Dorothy Whipple, bought from @persephonebooks ; absolutely gripping in that unsettled, post-war England way). What's everyone else reading to shift the November doldrums?Download image

You’ve probably already read this classic: The Bay Of Noon by Shirley Hazzard. English girl in unsettling, post-war Naples.
Oh to spend hours upon hours here....very happily 🙌🏻
The brilliant friend!!! By Elena Ferrante
Just finished The White Witch.
I am about to read Someone at a Distance too, but probably not until January. Why don’t I have more time to read?
Finally picking up Orient Express!
The Dutch House by Ann Patchett is keeping me up late ❤️
I loved Someone At A Distance so much, it’s probably my favourite Persephone. Today I’ve been reading documents about Sydney in 1804 but my most recent read was another Dorothy Whipple - They Were Sisters. Much darker than SAAD but still brilliantly written and compelling.
I just finished the Dutch house - absolutely brilliant
Homegoing is beautiful & heartbreaking. Highly recommend the audiobook!
Love these old school bookshop. Just makes you want to read. Must visit.
Thanks so much for stopping by Persephone, Jo. Isn’t Dorothy Whipple simply wonderful in every way?!
The Likeness, by Tana French. It's 7:42am and I'm still in bed, reading! Well, and on the phone...
Looking forward to reading Rules for Visiting by Jessica Francis Kane this weekend . Wishing I could stay in with a cup of ginger tea today! 😌
힛 기여엉 이뻐요 ㅎㅎ ㅜㅜ 진짜진짜 감탄스럽다
I have just read the Truants and by total coincidence straight after Agatha Christie’s Autobiography which was almost spooky. I had known it was an ode to Christie of sorts but not that the Autobiography was referenced in the way it was.
It’s certainly been a real No!-vember day today.
I always love perusing the shelves in Persephone Books. I’m currently reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
