We have a winner for December’s book-of-the-month in the CREATIVE NON-FICTION CATEGORY:
I’m delighted. I should have read this book last summer when I first heard about it on CBC. Mike Finnerty, the host of Daybreak Montreal, was sitting in for Anna Maria Tremonti that day and the conversation he had with the author made me want to get my hands on The End of Your Life Book Club then and there.
Listen to their conversation: it’s a lovely way to become acquainted with the book:
But in the FICTION CATEGORY, we have a tie between two novels:
- Muriel Barbery’s The Elegance of the Hedgehog
- Jonas Jonasson’s, The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared
Which means that we are in need of a RUNOFF VOTE!
So please, let your choice be known by this Friday. After that, you will be invited to read one or both books (in both Fiction and Creative non-fiction categories), so that we can begin sharing our impressions, opinions and insights gained from them, starting some time in December.
Choose now and enjoy December’s discussion!
