Friday Finds hosted by Should Be Reading asks us to share what great books we heard about or discovered in the past week.
My pick this week is a book called The Convent by Panos Karnezis to be released November 8, 2010 by W.W. Norton & Company. With my fascination of convents this one sounds right up my alley. Take a look at a bit about it from Fantastic Fiction…
In this beautifully told novel, “we witness justice and injustice, theological controversy, the politics of a tiny enclosed society, despair, cruelty, generosity, scandal, suspicion and suicide, all told with immense verve and skill” (London Sunday Times).
Sounds good, doesn’t it? Convent life, for some reason, is really interesting reading for me. I’d be curious to see how this story evolves. How about you – are you waiting for anything this week? Leave your link or share in the comments. I can always use more book suggestions. lol. Have a great day everyone!
