Searching for Schindler by Thomas Keneally
The Danger Tree by Olivia Manning
I’ll be starting a new book tonight but still don’t know what I’ll choose.
I might go for Love by Hanne Ørstavik which is the March selection from the Asymptote Book Club. I’ve read only one other book by Ørstavik, The Blue Room, which I found quite extraordinary. Love is meant to be even better – apparently the newspaper Dagbladet placed it sixth in a list of the best Norwegian novels of the past quarter-century.
Or it might be time to delve into my collection of Virago Modern Classics. They keep staring at me from the bookshelves.
Or maybe it’s time to return to my Classics Club list which hasn’t received much attention of late. Both Edith Wharton and The Age of Innocence and Anthony Trollope and Framley Parsonage are calling to me.
I have a strong feeling that all of this speculation is futile since when the moment comes to pick the book off the shelf, my hand will reach for something completely different.
