New and notable week of 27 October 2017
Seems we have sent out far too many emails this week, but it is a busy time of year, and I am taking some time off next week.
In no particular order here are some of the most notable books that arrived this past week.
Jamie Oliver brings us yet another beautiful and very useful new book. 5 Ingredients offers quick and easy – and simply delicious - recipes. Most are for 2 people making it perfect for young couples – or the old folks, and all are easy to double or triple for a family.
John Grisham’s latest is The Rooster Bar, a novel about law school students struggling with crushing debt, looking for a way out that may or may not be legal.
Storm and Silence by David P. Silcox and Harold Town was originally published in 1977, and re-issued this fall. This beautiful, big book is still the most comprehensive collection of the work of Tom Thomson’s work.
Christmas at the Vinyl Café is a collection of all of the Christmas stories by the late, great Stuart McLean, who lives on through his stories, brimming with charm and humour, reminding us what the holidays are all about!
Linwood Barclay is still in the once-idyllic community of Promise Falls, and Parting Shot is once again a gripping thriller packed with scandal.
