Robinson Crusoe | Daniel Defoe

I was born in the year 1632, in the city of York, of a good family, though not of that country, my father being a foreigner of Bremen, who settled first at Hull.

Robinson Crusoe | Daniel Defoe
post image

Robinson Crusoe, as a young and impulsive wanderer, defied his parents and went to sea. He was involved in a series of violent storms at sea and was warned by the captain that he should not be a seafaring man. Ashamed to go home, Crusoe boarded another ship and returned from a successful trip to Africa.

Crusoe's Daughter | Jane Gardam
post image

Europa Editions publishes many of Jane Gardam's books, and they have sales pretty often. My favorite of hers is currently on sale. Polly Flint's sea-faring father leaves her with her maternal aunts for a voyage and is lost at sea. Raised in a decidedly odd household by aunts who are stuck in the Victorian age, Gardam steers her though the World Wars and the many changes they wrought on society. Adrift, Polly takes Crusoe as her guiding light.

LeahBergen I‘ve read a couple by this author but not this one. It sounds great! I have A Long Way from Verona waiting on my shelves. 2y
Aimeesue @LeahBergen I looooove A Long Way From Verona. That's my second favorite of hers. Backlisted did a great podcast on it, too. 2y
Ruthiella I loved this book. I also loved 2y

Aimeesue @Ruthiella Have you read her short stories? "The Sidmouth Letters" is my favorite short story of all time. #Pemberlittens should definitely read it! 2y
jlhammar This was a good one! Definitely need to read more Gardam. I have God on the Rocks and Faith Fox on my shelves just waiting. Backlisted is such a great podcast. @LeahBergen Now I want to get A Long Way from Verona! 2y
Ruthiella I haven‘t read her short stories. Thanks for the tip! 2y
Aimeesue @jlhammar I adore Gardam. I wish she were still writing, but at 94, I suppose she's having a well deserved restful retirement. I led a book discush a few months ago on C's Daughter - I'm definitely a JG evangelist. 😂 I can't understand why she's not more well known. I think she's brilliant. 2y
LeahBergen @Aimeesue Oh, good to know. I‘ll give it a listen after I read the book. And now I must hunt down her short stories, I see! 😄 2y
