Booklover Mailbox – Museum of Modern Love, The Rarest Thing, Death of All Things Seen
The Museum of Modern Love by Heather Rose
One of the August book releases that caught my eye.
A mesmerising literary novel about a lost man in search of connection – a meditation on love, art and commitment, set against the backdrop of one of the greatest art events in modern history, Marina Abramovic’s The Artist is Present.
Review copy from Allen & Unwin.
The Rarest Thing by Deborah O’Brien
Upcoming November release from Deborah O’Brien, author of The Trivia Man, A Place of Her Own, Mr Chen’s Emporium and The Jade Widow.
… a heartwarming love story set in Victoria’s High Country fifty years ago and inspired by a true event… the discovery of a once thought extinct mountain pygmy possum.
Review copy from Lomandra Press.
The Death of All Things Seen by Michael Collins
The latest release from Man Booker nominated Irish author Michael Collins, that I’m eager to read before his appearance at the Brisbane Writers Festival.
Set in Chicago, in the midst of the financial crisis of 2008, The Death of All Things Seen is a deeply moving novel about complex identities and the fragility of humanity.
My own purchase.
