The Diaries of STW of course. I enjoyed them, but not as much as I did the Letters.

I have Helen Oyeyemi on my list of authors to check out. All her books sound intriguing.

As you've seen by email, I was quite baffled by Gingerbread! And I read the Diaries of STW, but rather fast for a chapter of my DPhil, and I shoud go back more gradually.


Hello lethe! I shall just have to read the letters then. :) Though I doubt I'll get to them before STW Week. If they are a fraction as good as the diaries, they'll be amazing (and I always feel slightly uncomfortable reading people's diaries and very slightly less uncomfortable reading their letters, though how much of a difference there really is as regards invading their privacy is moot).

Simon, it's nice to know someone else is bemused and I don't really know how to collect my thoughts about Gingerbread. I did enjoy it. But that epigraph from Sir Gawain & the Green Knight is extremely apt. I don't know if I can write about it...
