Loving this...part narrated by a 15 year old Alma,  this is a story of lost love and the horrors of the holocaust but it is much more. I give it full marks. Nicole Krauss is married to Jonathan Safran Foer of Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. The couple live in Brooklyn and I have a crush on this very cool couple.

Winner of the IMPAC Award in 2009. Set in New York. Excellent.

Tile obsession continues...

I find well organised shelving comforting. In foodie terms its the Sausage and Mash of Interiors. It calms me. If only I could catalogue and classify everything....

Give credit where credit is due

The print above created by Pia Jane Bijkerk and you can purchase via her website. I am so bad at giving credit where it's due. Mostly because I saved a picture on my hard drive and didn't reference properly. This is dealt with above - "so get a better filing system" . Oh the shame when a librarian is told to get a better filing system. I therefore pledge that I will credit absolutely everything I put on this blog from now on. Consider me told.
