@LeahBergen #persephoneclub
Here are my choices. I'm going for some American books but if they have been chosen b4 please let me know. Dorothy Hughes for a noir author I am keen to try, and Judith rosner as I tried Mr goodbar last year but persephone say this historical novel is her best work.
 @rubyslippersreads @Cathythoughts @quietjenn @CarolynM @elkeOriginal @Aimeesue @jlhammar @Gissy

LeahBergen Great choices, Andrew! I‘ve already read The Expendable Man (so good!) so I‘ll vote for 5mo
