Orphans and Angels by Linda Finlay

Another satisfying read by my author friend Linda Finlay with a local setting in Torquay.
Linda Finlay’s extensive research of life in the periods of history she writes about ensure a compelling novel that takes you back in time, this time to 1901 the time of Ragged Schools and the rise of the suffragette movement. 178 more words

Book Review

some thoughts: 'Lincoln in the Bardo' by George Saunders

Firstly, I feel it is important to mention that I had the pleasure of hearing George Saunders speak about this book at a literary festival. There also may have been a performance piece narrated by George and some of my colleagues, and this was nothing short of cool AF. 595 more words
