rivka I just re-read this last week. Makes me cry every time.


Sarah My father had recommended it to me a few months ago, but it took a while to get around to it. Lovely story.


message 3: by Sally (new) - added it

Sally I'm glad for goodreads and that I can follow you and find out about books I never ever would have known about because of you.


Sarah I love that too! Mind you, I've never had this long a 'to-read' list in my entire life.


message 5: by Colin (new)

Colin have you read his short story collection? SO GOOD.


Sarah Apparently it has been on my to-read list since November. I haven't read anything of his before, but I'll check it out as soon as I can.
