This sounds like a must read, so I will put it on my ever growing list.
On another note, I see on your sidebar that you have listed under your 2007 readings, Runaway by Alice Munroe. You probably know this, but our dear Alice has been nominted for the Man Booker International award, along with Margaret Atwood and Michael Ondaatje. A very good year for Canadian writers indeed.

Hurray! You expressed it so well: "a series of essay/sketches like a collection of watercolours, but with a sudden stab of the bold and brilliant" - I was clamouring around trying to find ways to describe the book, and that is exactly it. Maybe we should have a concerted read of The Winter Book now??

A lovely book which I haven't read for a while and now perhaps I must have a re-read.

Ths is one of my favourite books! It's enchanting. I was given the Winter Book for Christmas but haven't got round to it yet - maybe it's going to have to wait a few months now ...
