That’s On the Other Side: Letters to My Children from Germany 1940-46 by Mathilde Wolff-Monckeberg – one of only two Persephone Books I didn’t have and wanted, which makes me realise how many are languishing unread on my shelves. Talking of which, I also received A Tale of Two Cities by (of course) Charles Dickens – Mr. Dickens is one of those authors I love, but never seem to read. I’ve read three of his novels, but none for the last seven years.
And now to unveil my kind Santa – it is Rachel of Flowers and Stripes – thanks Rachel! I must confess that I haven’t read Rachel’s blog before, but of course I will be doing so now.
Many thanks to lovely Claire for organising this, and pop over to see who got what from whom in Persephone Secret Santa fun. I have a feeling that the receiver of my Santa gift may have a barren day, as events conspired against me, and it didn’t get to the post box in time to get to… but no, I shan’t spoil the surprise just yet.
