Claire reminds me that I made a mistake when I announced Persephone Reading Week on Friday - we actually planned to run it during the first week of May! The good news is that that is even sooner :)
I've just enjoyed reading the second volume of Mollie Panter-Downes stories, Minnie's Room, over the last couple of days, and think that I enjoyed it even more than the wartime stories for its evocation of post-WW2 life and how austerity impacted on the middle classes of Britain. Highly recommended!
I love books, baking and my boyfriend, and love to write about the first two. I particular love "forgotten" books, books brought out of obscurity by republication and those still languishing in obscurity. I'm currently reading my way through all of the Virago Modern Classics, but taking in other books along the way.
