The cover was just so tactile; a beautiful woven cloth hardback with gorgeous silver pickups. How could I resist??? I love all t Leggi tutto
I am not generally a Christmas book reader, or Christmas special watcher, mainly because I find the majority of these are a little too sappy for my tastes. But I saw a couple of nice reviews of this one, I've heard a lot of good things about Winterson's writing, and my library had it on the shelf, s Leggi tutto
