♥ Book Title : Packtrains & Airplanes
☯ Full Synopsis : "Born in a remote homestead at Lonesome Lake in south-west British Columbia, Trudy Turner was raised in true pioneer fashion, without running water, electricity or cars. (Trudy learned to fly a plane in her twenties, but didn't get her motor vehicle driver's license until she was in her sixties.) Her parents began their homestead in 1912 and her family spent most of the twentieth century in that area working their small farms and living independent lives in harmony with nature and the animals that inhabit the region. In 1939, as a young girl of 10, Trudy's father gave her the job of feeding the near-extinct trumpeter swans that wintered in the region. He had begun the feeding program in 1933 and Trudy kept it up until 1989. When she was 24, Trudy started her own homestead, building a home with the most basic hand tools. Now in her eighties, Trudy reflects on her unusual life and eloquently describes her experiences growing up in a world that others may view as isolated and lonely, but to her was a complete and satisfying existence. Her work is an honest portrayal of her life as viewed through a long lens of many years and many experiences; she does not hesitate to recognise her personal failings, as experience and observation have given her the gift of perception and insight. Her strong personal viewpoint is a positive reflection of her character, and countered by her deep appreciation for nature and what it has taught her."Article| Trudy Turner| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Girls of Slender Means (New Directions Classic)
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Long ago in 1945 all the nice people in England were poor, allowing for exceptions," begins The Girls of Slender Means, Dame Muriel Spark's tragic and rapier-witted portrait of a London ladies' hostel just emerging from the shadow of World War II. Like the May of Teck Club itself—"three times window shattered since 1940 but never directly hit"—its lady inhabitants do their best to act as if the world were back to normal: practicing elocution, and jostling over suitors and a single Schiaparelli gown. The novel's harrowing ending reveals that the girls' giddy literary and amorous peregrinations are hiding some tragically painful war wounds. Chosen by Anthony Burgess as one of the Best Modern Novels in the Sunday Times of London, The Girls of Slender Means is a taut and eerily perfect novel by an author The New York Times has called "one of this century's finest creators of comic-metaphysical entertainment.""Article| Muriel Spark| Statement ..."
