Publisher Description

As war is waged in the Middle East, a woman in New Zealand has her nose in a book. Kate is immersed in other battles, engrossed in eyewitness accounts of an earlier war in ancient Persia. She has grown up, left her Otago home and returned, and in all these years books have shaped her life and made sense of the world - offering mystery and solace, entertainment and enlightenment. In an evocative and moving mix of memoir and fiction, award-winning novelist Fiona Farrell writes of life from The Little Red Hen to Owls Do Cry, from T.S. Eliot to Aphra Behn. Frequently funny, always original, Book Book is another extraordinary offering from the author of The Hopeful Traveller.
