I need to combine this here.

Origimally DRABBLE, Margaret – DUPLICATE;
I actually purchased this w/out a cover; just a black HardCover;
just love the VERY appropriate illustrations!

When and why did I stop reading Drabble???

I remember my ex-husband and I noting (off a radio show)
that our creative-type lives were not so different from HER marriage.
THIS WAS FABULOUS!

It looks like Ustinov has created an interesting character, but this is an old-paperback-in-small-type, and I’m not certain it’s readable now.

It seems I’ve found another author to seek out; @ least the character of ?/Commander Dalgliesh.

Death of an Expert Witness (pp 213): WOW! I actually started this book first..then it disappeared for a wee while. Although a shorter novel, methinks i may have enjoyed it more; probably d/t the forensic Anthropology setting.

As Austen is one of my all-time-favoUrite-authors…I just didn’t want it to end.

+18-7-12 It was SO heartening to see SO many editions in G. ADV Image Search!

+ Fascinating author

+ The author had a woman find many fascinating illustrations!

My edition is a Signet Classic, and thus not exactly as shown.

Although a HUGE fan of Mary Ann Evans Cross (the author’s real name back when women had a hard time publishing), THIS is just not my favoUrite novel.

I was thinking of boxing this tome,  d/t its dust-collecting cover, but quickly remembered that it came from the dearly-departed ‘Upstairs Dave’ [R.I.P]…plus I Could have been using it while reading about The Tudors and historical fiction, so I’ll park it with the former for now.

  • MARIANNA
    I THOUGHT I read  “…author of SophiE’S CHOICE, but no matter…I ADORED THIS…haunting [which, if you haven’t guessed yet,  it my highest accolade] iN more than one respect!

  • DESPERATE FORTUNE
    Appreciated the attention to historical accuracy, but the book was just too long, and in GREAT contrast to MARIANNA, above.
