British Author Challenge May 2023: Jan Morris & R.F. Delderfield i 75 Books Challenge for 2023 (juni 2023)

Recensioner

Magical. Vintage Jan Morris: many strands, of history, politics, art, architecture, literature, finely woven in the end. The nowhere place comes alive in all its nowhereness! Loved reading this little gem while in the place. Highly recommended.
