4 new books

Aren't I lucky?

I got an email out of the blue recently from a lady named Heather in the US, who had picked up some VMCs and thought of me - all four were ones that I didn't have! She very kindly posted them to me and they arrived extremely promptly (I hope my thank you card is as swift in its trip over the Atlantic!). I am particularly excited about reading Thank heaven fasting as I have greatly enjoyed the Delafield books that I have read, and this has been on my wishlist for a while. I did confess that I have struggled with Edith Wharton in the past, but Heather points out that this volume is short stories so may be more manageable. Here's hoping.

Thank you Heather!


  1. Two women...one lovely and one lucky! That copy of Thank Heaven Fasting has me green with envy.

  2. Thank Heaven Fasting is really good but a bit depressing!

  3. How generous! I am most envious of Roman Fever; I thoroughly enjoyed the title story when I read it in a Persephone Biannually.

  4. I just came across your blog while searching for some info on an Elizabeth Gaskell short story. I wish you had a follow button! I've added you to my bookmarks... :) Great blog!
