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.

The Elegance of the Hedgehog - Muriel Barbery Don't take the little things in life for granted.. That's kind of the premise of this book. Also, it's about our perceptions of ourselves and our situation in life and how we are often wrong.. Clearly a good book for me at the moment!

The book was translated from the French, so I think some of the nuances got lost in translation, but mostly I enjoyed it and appreciated it.
