I’ll admit to having an obsession with clothing. Perhaps its something traded, once I gave up chemicals? I’ve had the good fortune to own some astonishingly beautiful clothes over the years, some of which are even in a museum. Lately, I’ve been hunting for a pair of pink, translucent shoes. Not just any pink, but specific to the one and only, dark designer. Not the ones made of horse-hair, not the version with the bronze toe-cap, not even the ones with the geodesic rubber add-ons. Nope, just the ones I can’t seem to find in my size, and of course, they are no longer in stock, anywhere in the world. .. maybe, I’ll just go for the yellow ones instead !!

My favorite novel of the last year. Once begun, this one is impossible to put down yet you will want it to go on and on. It's about love, sex, family, fame, identity and yes, pain. With an ending so transcendent and full of hope it made me cry.
