In 1929, Hungarian writer and poet Frigyes Karinthy wrote a short story called ‘Chains’ in which he coined the phrase ‘six degrees of separation’.
Authors Annabel Smith and Emma Chapman are excited to announce a new meme. On the first Saturday of every month, they will be choosing a book, and then linking it to five other books to form a chain. Everyone is invited to join in!
