BOOKISH FINDS: Surprise Post

My father rung me a couple of weeks ago and was more cryptic than usual. He told me there was a package being delivered to my house sometime in the week that was a gift for me. He wouldn’t say what.

A couple of days later The Heart is a Lonely Hunter appeared through my letterbox. I haven’t read any of Carson McCullers work, but the book’s premise – a lonely deaf-muteĀ  who becomes a confidante to the people around him- interests me. It was McCullers debut novel, published when she was just 23, a year older than me which as an aspiring writer is an inspiring story. It’s definitely going straight onto my To Read list!

Who can resist a gentleman brandishing a walking stick and riding an elephant? I certainly can’t. I’m becoming a bit of a tea collector. I picked up this brew from Utility on Bold Street. I’m particularly excited to try these tea bags. They sound mouth-watering!
