Lively Excitement!

Holy cow, how did I miss this? Penelope Lively has a new book out! It's a memoir of sorts, a meditation on age. It's called Ammonites and Leaping Fish, and is a look back at her long life of reading and writing, through six objects that she has gathered and cherished (surprise, ammonites and a leaping fish potsherd are part of these objects).

I can not wait to read it -- it's available in Canada in February from what I can tell and I am so excited to see it! Can not wait to get my hands on it :)

A little more info on this book can be found at The Guardian, as it is apparently out and buyable in the UK, and has been for a while, lucky Brits.


  1. Sounds good; I'll have to find out when it's coming out here in the U.S. Thanks for the heads up on this one! I've really enjoyed the few Penelope Lively books that I've read.

    1. Just checked Book Depository -- and it's on sale!

  2. Thanks for sharing the news about this book! The title alone entices me to read it.

  3. I like the title, too. Thanks for sharing!
