    This was an impulse buy. I was standing at the counter in my local bookshop ready to pay for my other purchases when I saw this beautiful looking book. I had to pick it up.

    ”Suntem oameni, nu mașini. Avem și noi zile proaste. Suntem inspirați, și totuși dăm greș. Nu suntem unidimensionali. Avem inimi ce se frâng și suflete cu care nu știm ce să facem. Ucidem și distrugem, dar și construim și facem lucruri posibile. Am fost...

    This book has a little bit of everything and was the perfect read for the calm afternoon of Christmas. Jeanette Winterson is completely herself in this book, and I do wonder how it would come across if you were not already familiar with her writing. For me, I am a huge fan, so it worked. Each of the...
