My thanks to CBC Books for including Magnified World in their summer reading recommendations list! Click here to see the whole list.
Does this make you want to lie on a beach reading or what? I actually did just that this past weekend, on Centre Island with Peter Carey’s The Chemistry of Tears, which ripped my heart out so quietly I hardly noticed until I finished the book and basically just crumpled. Highly recommended, but opt for some dark (tear-camouflaging) sunglasses while reading.
I’m eager to check out the rest of the books in the list. Feel free to share your own recommendations!
