All Good Things (from Paris to Tahiti) - Sarah Turnbull
Early readers of my blog will know that I LOVE books about life in France. But I don't like fiction. I only like reading memories or (auto)biographies or stories which are at least based on aspects of the author's real life.
I just finished watching the (Steve) Jobs movie and it really made me want to read the book (which is something I meant to do ages ago but never found the time for since it's pretty long).
But then I suddenly wondered if there were any new books about life in France and I google my old 'friend' Sarah Turnbull. I say 'friend' only because we both come from Sydney, Australia.
Here on SMH is an article about her latest book 'All Good Things'. But if you don't want any spoilers about the book or her life, don't read more than halfway down. Stupid writer says they don't to give it away and then proceeds to tell us the ending of the story (I hate that!) Anyway, it won't prevent me from wanting to read the book though.
The hardcover version only came out in September 2013 and the softcover one won't be here till April-May 2014.
I still really want to read Memoirs of a Showgirl by Shay Stafford (Bryce Corbett's wife) and this new book Naples: Way of love by Lisa Clifford (and photographed by Sydneysider Carla Coulson) which is not about Paris or France, but nonetheless interesting for a Sydney expat travel lover girl like me. Neither of these books are available on Amazon or Bookdepository though :(
When I actually get around to reading any of these 3 books, I'll be sure to write a review about them. In the meantime, be sure to check out my previous book reviews here.
and if I don't talk to you before then, Bonne Année !! :)
