One speck of wisdom I’ve garnered from a lifetime of inhaling books and then regurgitating them in their entirety to anyone who cares to ask if I’ve “read anything good lately”? People don’t want their stories served on a platter by a bystander. They’re merely peckish for a morsel of intrigue. Thus, for gifting something in the fictitious realm, I’ve already plated the amuse-bouche for you:
The Last Party by Clare Mackintosh is for those who have read everything by Conan Doyle and Christie and desire a bewitching murder mystery they’ve overlooked (and this is set around New Year’s, a nice seasonal touch).
Septology by Jon Fosse is less a literal puzzle than a literary one, the 3-volume work, written entirely in 1 sentence, is collected here for the first time and translated from Norwegian by Damion Searls.
Thank you, dear reader, for helping to spread the word of Wondercade!
Your advocacy is greatly appreciated and has been noted in our ledgers — we haven’t decided exactly what to do with said ledgers just yet, but being that we took the time to have them bound in leather with ‘Friends of Wondercade’ embossed in gold leaf on the cover, rest assured that it will be both badass and bespoke.
