Need I say more?

Just give me happy stuff, okay? Yes, yes love hurts & women in love are stoopid & most hot guys are untrustworthy cads. 🤷🏼‍♀️

CatLass007 In Living Color! Awesome choice. Did you watch the competing Super Bowl Halftime show? I think it was 1992. Two snaps, a twist, and a kiss!💋 4w
TheKidUpstairs Sorry the book was no good, but LOVE your image choice! Three snaps in a zed formation!!! 4w

Providence | Anita Brookner

“They were married on his embarkation leave. Louise made her daughters wedding dress, sitting up all night to finish it. It was of the palest pink china silk; an audacious choice destined to set off her daughter‘s delicate white skin. Instead of a veil , there was a little pill-box hat. It was the most beautiful wedding dress Louise had ever made. “

Very happy to be reading Anita Brookner again ♥️

His books never disappoint. A couple of unexpected things near the end. Quite a bit of romance. One thing annoyed me. The kid character was supposed to be 9. I had to keep reminding myself of this fact as she sounded and acted like a 14 year old. Glad I read it.

MrsMalaprop I haven‘t read this one. Love Patrick Gale 🥰. 1mo
Jeg So do I @MrsMalaprop . Michelle lent me this one. An op shop find for her. 1mo

Whether it's visual art, music, movies, or literature, I love seeing an artist reference their own favorite influences. In Oyeyemi's latest, she mashes up two Calvino novels - If on a winter's night and Invisible Cities (maybe more? - those are the only two I've read) with a few nods to Borges mixed in. It's perfect fuel for this meditation on the infinity of mental representations of the same city that exist in the minds of its visitors 👇

Billypar It's Prague entering a hall of mirrors but one where every image reflects something different back. But her novels are never content to rest on just one focus, so she weaves together reflections on relationships of three's, both literal romantic ones, and the implied author, subject, and reader. I haven't mentioned the plot yet, and if you're a fan of her work, you can probably guess why. It's complicated. But in the best way 🤯😸 2mo
