Picks of the week

Poet and fiction writer Tim Jones has interviewed Argentinean Elena Bossi about her Slightly Peculiar Love Story 'The Ache'. I like the way he managed to keep her inflection intact when Elena asked him to 'tidy' her English. Read the three questions here.

Elena Bossi

In case you didn't receive the rat's newsletter this week, it's here.

Someone's produced a book you can eat when you've finished with it; another you can plant and grow back into a cousin of the birch tree it came from: Ten Unusual Book Designs.

And finally, if any of you haven't met Emma Neale yet, or her blog, you are in for a treat.

Thank you for these introductions, Penelope! I so enjoyed Bossi's The Ache.

The crazy books are, well, crazy! Anything I can eat, I love. The pasta book is especially appealing.

Off to read more... :)

Isn't that cool, Tim? Ratty's going to mention it here soon; he's just asking for a bit of help to get dressed, furred, whatever.

Jayne, you're welcome and I'm glad you enjoyed The Ache. ELena and I have co-written a novel, which we're going to publish here.

Happy munching.
