I have been itching to read a Persephone for a while now, especially after Claire of Paperback Reader and Verity of cardigangirlverity hosted Persephone Reading Weekend at the end of February. I’ve had a hard time finding some of the titles from Persephone Books’ catalog in my library and I just cannot justify the cost of ordering one at this moment. It dawned on me earlier this month that I might be able to find a Persephone or two in the stacks of my library at school.
Lo and behold, my school has six Persephone books available! (I was only to find five of the six titles in the stacks.) While not the beautiful editions printed by Persephone, I am excited to read my very first Persephone. I just don’t know which one to start with first! Suggestions?
- An Interrupted Life (Etty Hillesum)
- The Home-Maker (Dorothy Canfield Fisher)
- Flush (Virginia Woolf)
- The Wise Virgins (Leonard Woolf)
- Journal (Katherine Mansfield)
