    Unless MOBI ↠ Paperback unless free, Unless KindleCompulsively readable this main character comes from a very long proud lineage of other literary protagonists who get totally fucked over by their offspring Although it doesn't come close to the pathos articulation thereof of say Lionel Shriver's We Need to Talk About Kevin nor the titan in decay tableau which is Philip Roth's American Pastoral Unless is way playful and accessible It is the same old story though unless anything happens to me I will definitely get my hands on every single thing Carol Shields has written or will write

    Unless MOBI ↠ Paperback unless free, Unless KindleDid I tell you I just clocked up a count of just over 500 novels read according to my GR novels shelf? Hey how about that It must make me some kind of authority now I can dish out advice start up a helpline I know which novel to attach to the St Bernard dog to take to the fallen climber in the Alps Except I’m actually getting worse at picking novels to read I just checked and 13 out of 27 novels read so far this year have got a 1 or 2 star rating ie I hated them felt they were a blight on my life Why is that?Part of the problem is that when I find an author I like I never read anything else by them it would be too obvious recent exceptions Edward St Aubyn and Jean Rhys Also I think I’m easily led by reviewer enthusias

    Unless MOBI ↠ Paperback unless free, Unless KindleYou wouldn't expect it from her but Carol Shields has written a naughty book Put your yellow highlighter down There's no sex but the Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Stone Diaries is doing something indecorous here ribbing our notions of grief even sn
