Re: 2017 Palimplist Discussions

And Ang again...I see you read Possession - have you read anything else by Byatt? I loved Possession and have Angels & Insects high on my to-do list at the moment.

Re: 2017 Palimplist Discussions

I just finished Swing Time and noticed it on a few other Palimplists. I've put some brief thoughts on my list, but I'd love to hear what others thought.
