The circle game


The end of the year is hog heaven for those who love a list, especially when favourite authors provide their best reads Did they agreed with you, thus displaying impeccable literary taste? Who else do they like?

Rachael King liked Novel about my wife by Emily Perkins, who liked Geoff Dyer who liked Age of wonder by Richard Holmes.

Fiona Farrell liked Alison Wong and they both liked The lustre jug by Bernadette Hall. So did Cilla McQueen and all three also liked Vincent O’Sullivan‘s Further convictions pending.

I’m sure O’Sullivan liked their work too but unfortunately he didn’t mention it so this literary liking circle remains disappointingly incomplete.

I’m keeping an eye out though, surely there must be at least one chain out there that ends with the author it began with.
