About this deal

Interesantākie man laikam šķiet viņa braucieni uzpirkt citu cilvēku bibliotēkas - tur nu gan divu vienādu stāstu nav. I’m fortunate to be locked down with my wife and our one year old daughter, so as silver linings go, I couldn’t have wished for more – although without the excuse of work, I’ve changed considerably more nappies than I normally would have done. Other books have used letters to great effect, like Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, even if the rest of the book is standard narrative prose. I love-a the folded corners of books-a because it makes me wonder what caused the person to stop a-reading at this point? I hope there is redemption in her future, but even given her kindness to stray cats ( not necessarily a good thing) and maybe to old ladies, there was no saving this character for me.

In this instalment, and I think we must now think of them as an ongoing series, there are three major differences.Someone who is so full of themselves and their business and selfishly could care less about others = toxic relationship. As usual, I've forgotten the specific details of the previous book, but here I wasn't particularly fond of Anna. Now it’s time for her to dig deep and use every trick at her disposal if she’s to reclaim her beloved business—and her life.

Putting on a brave face, has issues with her past and present, and relationship issues with her dad. There’s no humour in that of course, but she told me that one of her friends had seen a neighbour, a 75 year old woman who didn’t want to be seen visiting her equally aged neighbour by going through the front door, so instead she’d scaled a 6ft fence to have a lockdown cup of tea with her in the garden. The protagonist is a lonely woman in her mid-50s with a tenuous grasp on reality, which only gets weaker as she encounters more and more challenges in every day life, and in particular challenges to her own identity and self-image. A heartening and uproariously funny novel of high hopes, bad choices, book love, and one woman’s best—and worst—intentions. But since I do know him, and Wigtown, and many of the people (especially “Eliot”, the director of the Wigtown Book Festival, who is allowed a pseudonym when others are not), I can testify to the truth of much of this book.The Scottish landscape—geese flying over the salt marsh, the meandering river where he likes to fish—is gorgeous .
