To Each His Own | Leonardo Sciascia
post image
batsy To Each His Own is a Sicilian small town unconventional detective story with a dash of noir. Good Behaviour is billed as a dark satire of 20th-century Irish society and, true to my brand, seemingly with a dash of #spinsterlit vibes. Two Young Wives is a 19th-century epistolary novel of two best friends from a convent who go on to live two very different lives of duty vs. decadence. 6mo
vivastory Great selections! My vote is for Good Behavior 6mo
Hamlet I‘ve always wanted to read some Balzac, plus I like the “duty vs. decadence” idea. 6mo

Suet624 I might have to order Good Behavior just from your description. 6mo
Suet624 Well that was quick. I couldn‘t wait. Ordered it. 6mo
batsy @Hamlet It does sound really good. I like the concept of a study of two contrasting personalities via correspondence. 6mo
batsy @erzascarletbookgasm They're always so tempting, aren't they 😆 6mo
batsy @Cathythoughts @arubabookwoman Happy to hear you both enjoyed Good Behaviour, as that's what the group voted for. Really looking forward to it 🙂 6mo
batsy @Suet624 We're always happy to enable each other's eager book-buying over here 😁 6mo
batsy @youneverarrived That's wonderful! 🙂💕 6mo
Suet624 So I ordered it and then 10 minutes later, after organizing my shelf of NYRB book, I discovered that I already had a copy. I quickly sent the company an email to cancel the order. Five minutes later they responded that they would cancel it. All on a Sunday evening. I‘m exhausted now. But at least I have the book in hand. LOL. 6mo
batsy @Suet624 Oh no! I would be exhausted too, hahaha. With thanks to the book gods that it all ended well 😆 6mo
Suet624 @batsy Now the Order Department is joking with me through email. :) Gotta love the personal touch. 6mo
batsy @Suet624 😁 6mo
youneverarrived @vivastory I decided to wait to find out, I like the surprise of it. 6mo
