It’s all go this week, isn’t it?
Yes, the Christmas Extra Shiny is upon us, with 30 additional reviews and articles. Also, the Book Club is discussing Lila by Marilynne Robinson. I’m about halfway through the book at the moment, and can see I’m going to need a lot explained to me, so I hope you’ll join us in our debate.
A quick mention of a couple of reviews I’ve written. First, the properly extraordinary story behind the creation of comic book heroine, Wonder Woman written by Jill Lepore. Secondly, the collected shortlist for the Notting Hill Editions biennial essay prize, which were just stupendously good.
Do go over and have a look at all the new reviews – hopefully we can give you some ideas for all those tricky festive gifts.
Wow–it’s already SNB time! My how the time is flying by. I really want to read the Lepore book (so will have to go check out that review). I loved the book she wrote about Benjamin Franklin’s sister which I read at the beginning of this year. BTW–I have that Clare Clark book on my TBR pile and am absolutely going to read those Ferrante novels next year. They have all been seriously raved about and I feel like I have been seriously missing out!
