a small bounty

Picked up a few books in Toronto.


I finished Night Below Station Street last week. It was depressing. I was already anxious about the trip - specifically about leaving the kitten for a week with a stranger and coming home and finding he didn't love me anymore - so I found that book hard to read because it made me constantly uncomfortable.

Now I'm on 20/72 - Bear by Marian Engel (1976). An infamous book that Wikipedia describes as "a tale of erotic love between a librarian and a bear." Cool.

  1. Did you ever see the CBC made-for-tv version of Nights Below Station Street, made in the 90s? While a bit depressing, I thought it was really well done, and maybe easier to take in in a few hours rather than dragging out a depressing-ish book when you're not in the mood for it. Good to see you in TO, Habby!
