The Incantation of Frida K.

I'm about halfway through The Incantation of Frida K. by Kate Braverman. I was a little reluctant to read about the life of Frida Kahlo again - there seems to be a lot about her. I'm struggling with the book because of this but what makes it a very good read for me is the original writing, the language - beautiful and unusual. I often like a book for the lyrical writing, the imagery, metaphors etc as much as the story.The other similar book in the voice of Frida Kahlo that I've read is "Love…See More

I (Geeta) can offer up to 3 people a lift from Surrey to Eleusis, leaving at 5 am on 1st June and/or returning to England about 5 pm on 4th June. I can offer one person (or a couple) accommodation on the night before we travel and the night that we return.

Thank you Geeta - nice offer.

The Omelette Sutra

Posted by Geeta Chari on May 20, 2017 at 14:00 1 Comment
