“Picture Books: the Wheel of the Year, cultural traditions/history, tales of mythology and lore, object-based nonfiction (no biographies), ghosts.” @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation
Next, @AgentSophieL, who wants a beautifully written love story heart warming and heart breaking in equal measure, a voice driven literary novel that speaks to us now and narrative nonfiction/memoir that offers up a window to another place/moment. More at bit.ly/3bq1wEK
as entertainingly informative as SAPIENS by Yuval Noah Harari, something as transporting and heart-breaking as THE ONCE AND FUTURE KING by TH White or with the sheer audacity and brilliance of KINDRED by Olivia E Butler. Read more about Clare's list here: bit.ly/3aok4oW
First up is our fearless leader @C_Conville, who wants something as bittersweet as THE PURSUIT OF LOVE by Nancy Mitford, as fiendishly clever as PALE FIRE by Vladimir Nabokov, as engrossing as IN A PLACE OF GREATER SAFETY by Hilary Mantel...

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife@alexandraovery @wensday95 Not gonna lie: that poison dress book sounds really cool, now that I have said it. So I am going to say it: a narrative NF about poison and the non-poison uses in history. #MSWL
Retweeting because I need a poison NF book. #MSWL
