A Folio Society Handbook | Brian Codling, The Folio Society
post image

Another lovely anthology, this one from The Folio Society. Includes short pieces under the headings Home and Away, Christmas at Sea, In Foreign Lands, Seasonal Feasts and Entertainments, The Back or Beyond, and In Time of War & Other Perils. T.S. Eliot's The Journey of the Magi serves as epilogue.

Caroline2 I tried reading the first book of this series and couldn‘t get into it. Either it was too daft or I wasn‘t in the mood for that kinda comedy at the time. 🤷‍♀️ 2mo
