Book Description

3 Sep 2004
As war is waged in the Middle East, a woman in New Zealand has her nose in a book. Kate is immersed in other battles, engrossed in eyewitness accounts of an earlier war in ancient Persia. She has grown up, left her Otago home and returned, and in all these years books have shaped her life and made sense of the world - offering mystery and solace, entertainment and enlightenment. In an evocative and moving mix of memoir and fiction, award-winning novelist Fiona Farrell writes of life from The Little Red Hen to Owls Do Cry, from T.S. Eliot to Aphra Behn. Frequently funny, always original, Book Book is another extraordinary offering from the author of The Hopeful Traveller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, well-written and touching 11 April 2007
By E. Will
Format:Paperback
I read this book about two years ago and I still tell people today about things I learned in it, not about ancient history, but about recent NZ history. Fiona Farrell is a good writer who manages to have several story lines going at once. This was a very satisfying read -- there is a good plot (several!) good characterisation and it made me feel nostalgic and wistful. I loved it.
