5/5: lost in a book
I've had a spare book published by Persephone on my shelf, ready for a day when I needed a break/treat, and today was just such a day. The book I'd been keeping on tap was Amy Levy's Reuben Sachs. When I chose it I was only going on the implicit recommendation that Persephone had published it, and I'm so glad I read it. Now I need to pick another Persephone standby.
