The Block

A blog for authors and readers by publishers. By Wordsmack - a South African speculative science fiction publisher. Wordsmack accepts short stories, novellas and novels on a year-long submissions basis.

State of Wonder - Ann Patchett Ann Patchett is one of my favourite authors. This book is no exception even though the middle bit, in Manaus, was a bit too long.

I'm off to the Amazon soon and this book scared me a bit, but the complexity and honesty of the book made me want to go even more. I would recommend it to good friends who like good books.

Bel Canto is still my favourite though, so read that first.
