#Booked2019 Thankyou #publicdomain My last book in my first book challenge. A reread , a brilliant story. I remember now what I loved , it is the study of contradictions - of what it means to be human - that I learned so much from. Based on Gauguin & how art “ heightens the poignancy that all beauty has“ sensual & spiritual.I‘m blown away by this one. This challenge had me revisiting 2 books I might never have read again 💔 challenge done ✅ 💃🏾

Cathythoughts Loved this challenge!! So glad I completed it. 👍🏻. Next up ... #booked2020 (edited) 4mo

#WalkingOnTheMoon
I don't think there will be much moonwalking going on in this novel based on the life of Paul Gauguin. ?
This one is still TBR but I enjoyed Of Human Bondage and The Razor's Edge when I had a little "Somerset Maugham stage" in my early twenties.

It is one of the defects of my character that I cannot altogether dislike anyone who makes me laugh.
