Sunday Salon: Ishiguro and Edmund White Novels

 A new purchase:

A Saint from Texas by Edmund White, August 6, 2020, Bloomsbury

Description: From Edmund White, a bold and sweeping new novel that traces the extraordinary fates of twin sisters, one destined for Parisian nobility and the other for Catholic sainthood. Yvette and Yvonne Crawford are twin sisters, born on a humble patch of East Texas prairie but bound for far grander fates. (publisher)

I opened this book at the bookstore and decided to try reading it over a cup of hot tea. Intrigued by the story line and the characters, I then decided to buy it, along with the novel I came in to get, Klara and the Sun by Ishiguro. 




Two nice books for today!

What are you reading this week?

I am completely fascinated now about A Saint from Texas. It's new-to-me, but I love the sound of the plot. And, of all things, it's set in Texas, my state.

I am a fan of Ishiguro, and I couldn't wait to read his new novel after I heard him speak through the virtual version of our Houston author series. I loved it, but I suspect it is not for everyone. I hope you like it, too.

Have a great week!

A book and a cup of tea sounds lovely!

Both books look interesting. I miss the days of going into bookstores and reading a page or two before deciding to buy a book. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
