Six Degrees of Separation – from Never Let Me Go to ???
Once in a while I try one of these from the meme hosted by Books are My Favorite and Best
This one starts with:
A book I didn't like from an author whose earlier work, Remains of the Day, I really did like.
Which reminds me of...
...another book I didn't like from another author I usually like.
I loved the cover of this one, but it was the title, not the cover, that reminded me of...
...a book I read years ago and loved (more than anything else I read by Burgess).
So what else did I read in the early 1960s that was new then and later became a classic?
Something completely different--a great road trip which reminds me of another great road trip...
...this one from the 1980s ( Blue Highways: A Journey into America by William Least Heat-Moon )
This cover reminded me of...
Book Bait: Choosing a Book by its Cover on The Australian Women Writers’ Challenge blog.
This is not exactly a road trip, it is a collection of "stories that...chart the relationships white Australians have with the land and the Indigenous people they share it with."
I want to read this book! I will probably have to buy it online because it is not something my local library is likely to acquire.
This was an interesting place to end up because it was another Australian Lit blog that led me to do Six Degrees this week--ANZ LitLovers LitBlog
