Three finds this week.
The Photograph, by Penelope Lively, came from Bookmooch. I read about it on Janeology author Karen Harrington's Scobberlotch blog and it sounded really interesting, about a man who discovers a picture of his wife holding hands with another man, who then becomes determined to find out the story behind the picture. Oh, and you should be reading Karen's blog if you're not already!
The Original of Laura, Vladimir Nabokov's last work, was published on Tuesday and I was the first person to buy it at my local indie, Porter Square Books. It's a collection of notes on his last novel, which he never completed. The book actually reproduces his notecards and you can pop them out and mimic Nabokov's writing process by playing around with the order. I don't think I'm actually going to do that but what a fascinating concept.
Finally, Whom God Would Destroy, by Commander Pants (ahem) arrived late last week for review. This just looks like fun- a religious parody of sorts. Can't wait.
What can't you wait to read this week?
