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.
