Summer books

Am planning to take these texts when I travel: a P.D James detective novel, Mary Midgely (The Myths we Live By), Francois Cheng (The Way of Beauty), a Pierre Hadot book for some dry, but thoughtful Greek philosophy, a collection of American short stories recommended on an excellent summer reading list here, a Le Monde magazine edition about Levis-Strauss, a recent novel about death by French writer Maylis de Kerangal and a very old green hard-backed collection of Katherine Mansfield's letters, bought by my grandma in 1929. I am opting for Kindle and books and my bag is rather heavy!

Visual Verse : The Cerulean Song

I have another little piece over at Visual Verse this month. You can read my text, the latest installment of Aunt Dorothea's letters to Clementine if you click just here.

Visual Verse is an inspiring project; brilliant to read, look at and write for. Check out some great writing by Edan Lepuki, Sohini Basak and others....read, read, read...
