Basic Black with Pearls | Helen Weinzweig

“Lola” is living her best life. Having left a husband and two children, she travels the world directed by coded messages interpreted from magazines for assignations with her spy lover. But does she?

As she waits, she reminisces about past meetings and her past life. The narrative is fully interior and dreamy, with a nebulous timeline and hints that not is all as it might seem and the narrator might be even wholly unreliable. Quite fascinating.

Liz_M Digression: The most unreliable omission for me is where does the money coming from to pay for all this travel? 1mo
kspenmoll Sounds intriguing! 1mo
BarbaraBB I was wondering too about the money! 1mo

Billypar Congrats on the new cat! And you pretty much spelled out my plans for today 😸📚 1mo
quietjenn @vivastory it was really quite lovely 😊 1mo
quietjenn @BarbaraBB I liked it, but I'm glad that I read it a bit earlier than I usually do, so I'll have time to ruminate on it before our discussion. 1mo
quietjenn @LeahBergen yes, our sweet senior kitty passed away earlier this spring, so we've been feeling a bit lonely. Took a trip to the shelter and ended up adopting two! 1mo
quietjenn @Billypar Thanks! I hope you enjoy your day (and the book). 1mo
BarbaraBB The more I think about it the more I like it! 1mo
merelybookish New kitties are so fun! Sometime like having miniature horses galloping about. 😁 1mo
Suet624 Aww, I want a kitty. 1mo
rubyslippersreads @merelybookish My downstairs neighbor says she can hear my cats galloping through the house. 😹 Congratulations on the new kitties @quietjenn 😻 1mo
merelybookish @rubyslippersreads Oh good. After I wrote that I thought @quietjenn would think I was so weird. But they really do sound like little 🐎🐎 😹 1mo
quietjenn @merelybookish haha, nothing to worry about. We often hear the upstairs cats and this one I think is little but dart-y, so I can totally see it! @rubyslippersreads thank you! They are super fun. 1mo
quietjenn @Suet624 I do recommend the experience 🙂 1mo
rubyslippersreads @Suet624 I second the recommendation from @quietjenn 😸 1mo
