30 Day Book Meme – Day 16

Favourite book of your favourite writer.

Oops. I skipped this question, which should have come immediately after I wrote about my favourite writer: Carolyn Slaughter.

I’d have a hard time naming my favourite book by Ms. Slaughter. The Banquet was the novel I discovered first and the book that sent my scurrying to find more of her work.

I am waiting for them to come. I’m not frightened at all. Their coming is the only certainty, so I hold to it.

Thus begins Harold’s story of his relationship with Blossom, a young Marks and Spencer shop girl.

But I also love her novel The Story of the Weasel (also called Relations). And her book Magdalene. Whatever she turns her hand to,  the result is always sublime for me.
