I know I've used this book before, but there's no other choice for #MyImmortal. Xas haunts me. #OctoberXFiles

Centique I never stop being delighted when anyone loves an Elizabeth Knox book 😍 🇬🇸🇳🇿 (😂 ps I can‘t tell which of these is the NZ flag - that one star is so small!) 14mo
CarolynM @Centique The rest of the world can't tell when they're full size 😂 (I'm having a go at both our countries in case you weren't sure) I adored The Vintner's Luck, I think about it often. The only other one of her's I've read is The Angel's Cut, because I had to read more about Xas. I need to read some others. Do you have a favourite? 14mo
Centique @CarolynM I totally agree about the flags! Yes I loved these two as well 14mo

CarolynM @Centique Oh wow, they both sound fabulous. I'm going to stack them. Thanks 14mo
Cinfhen Hi @Centique your back!!!! And it‘s true, I can‘t tell the difference between the flags😂😂 and book sounds fabulous #stacked 14mo
CarolynM @Cinfhen I read it with my book group and for the first 40 or so pages I thought "what is this pretentious rubbish?" but then somehow I fell in love with it. It's strange and beautiful and poignant. 14mo

It was the angel's wings, rather than #AngelEyes that captured my imagination in these books. #AbbaInAugust

Centique I loved Vintners Luck. 😍 Is The Angels Cut a follow up? 1y
CarolynM @Centique Yes, it's about Xas in the 20th century. I didn't like it as much as the first one, but there is some interesting stuff in there. 1y

This strange and haunting story revolves around the relationship between an 1800's French winemaker and the angel who visits him for a day each year. The writing is beautiful. The final image still gives me goosebumps.

Centique I loved this! Elizabeth Knox is one of my favourite authors 😍 2y
CarolynM @Centique Have you read the sequel? Such a different style and mood! (edited) 2y
Centique @CarolynM no I haven‘t, will stack it! I‘ve read 5 others of hers and they were all really different from each other. My favourite was 2y

"You were different. You went on being a soldier, a family man, a vintner, as though in your life I was a condiment, a salt that brought out its full flavor, not its central fact. I was part of your calendar."

Most of my books with an occupation in the title refer to royalty of some sort, but I found three about regular folks. Alienists, carpenters, and vintners. #occupationintitle #fallintobooks

Op shop finds today. The middle one was in the free box. Love Richard Flanagan, have wanted to read this for a while. I was attracted to the last book Gone mainly because it was a hard cover and an interesting blurb. Turns out it is very new -- published this year.

Poetic, haunting, elegant prose. Poly-friendly. Lovely and gutting. Has a compelling sequel but that has a very different prose style.
