One of the millions of Syrian refugees who had fled the only life they knew, she first thought- though there was an equal chance that he was a local Turk, or a Kurd or a Gypsy or a bit of everything. #gypsyroad #wanderingjune

Thinner | Stephen King
post image

“Just that one word, sent on the wafting, cloying sweetness of his breath. ‘Thinner.‘ [T]he old Gypsy reaches out and caresses his cheek with one twisted finger. His lips spread open like a wound, showing a few tombstone stumps poking out of his gums. His tongue squirms between them and then slides out to slick his grinning, bitter lips.”

BarbaraBB This is the one he wrote under a pseudonym I learned from @TrishB yesterday. I wonder why? I‘m not such a SK fan but this sounds interesting. 8mo
LiterRohde @BarbaraBB He was writing more than his publisher was willing to put out (one book a year) so he wrote as Richard so he could publish more books. I believe he published 4 books as Bachman he had previously written but not yet published, and then wrote and published Thinner as Bachman, before killing him off (being found out). King then “found” two more books after Bachman‘s death and published them posthumously. (edited) 8mo
BarbaraBB Wow, such a good story! Thx! 8mo

LiterRohde @BarbaraBB I‘m sure that was probably too much information. Or at least more than you wanted. I tend to go overboard when explaining things. 8mo
BarbaraBB Absolutely not!!! 8mo

I know its #GypsyRoad not Gypsy Rose, but when I think of the word gypsy, I think of the incomparable Gypsy Rose Lee.

Pepita | Vita Sackville-West
post image

Ok so let me try to get my act together for #wanderingjune I obviously wandered off the path and got lost in the bushes!

Here‘s one I‘m adding to my TBR #becauseVita
This is the story of Vita Sackville West‘s grandmother, who is described as “the half-gypsy daughter of an old clothes pedlar from Malaga” Seems Vita was fascinated by her links to the #gypsyroad

Aimeesue I recently acquired Juliet Nicholson's book on her family, Pepita's descendants, and I'm looking forward to it! (edited) 8mo
Centique @Aimeesue that sounds fascinating! Let me know what you think when you‘ve finished. 8mo
Cinfhen Thanks for joining in!! This one sounds fascinating!!! 8mo
Cinfhen So does your tagged book @Aimeesue 🤩 8mo
BarbaraBB Great post 😀 8mo
