Six Degrees of Separation: March 2015

 

 

 I’m a bit late to the party this month but as I have been on holidays I think it is OK!

Six Degrees of Separation: Saturday 7th March 2015

I first heard about Wild by Cheryl Strayed when she was being interviewed on Conversations with Richard Fidler. I didn’t think I’d enjoy the interview that much but I was fascinated!

The same goes for Boy, Lost by Kristina Olsson who was also in conversation with Richard Fidler. Again I was hooked. Olsson is an Australian author…

One book I have recently read for the Australian Women Writers Challenge is The Strays by Emily Bitto. I loved it! It is about the art world…

As is The Blazing World by Siri Hustvedt which looks at gender in the art world…

As does How to be Both by Ali Smith (but it is probably unfair to lump these two together).

Neverhome by Laird Hunt is a novel about gender in the American Civil War.

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell is a famous and very readable novel about the American Civil War.

  1. I’m digging your connection between The Strays and The Blazing World – I loved both of those books. I enjoy books about the art world – i recently devoured The Goldfinch. How to Be Both is our next book club book – I’m looking forward to it.
