No Matter How Bad I Feel….
….. I can hardly ever say no when my girlfriend calls and says she wants to go to a thrift shop!
I have to show these photo’s because of my “sis”, Cath . I sent her a new version of this “original” version of Vanishing Cornwall, and so want her to see I have my own (older) copy now!
We both like Daphne du Maurier and about all her books take place in Cornwall.. which is also the place Cath was born!
If a miracle ever happens and I happen to get to England Cornwall will surely be top of my list to see… but I will also be sure not to watch Rebecca before going there! :o)
The Second book, The Murrow Boys is about Edward R Murrow and other journalists.
Publishers Weekly described The Murrow Boys as "a lively, colloquial history of broadcast journalism that is so exciting one's impulse is to read it in a single sitting." It tells the swashbuckling tale of Edward R. Murrow and his legendary band of CBS radio journalists - Charles Collingwood, Howard K. Smith, William Shirer, Eric Sevareid, and others - as they "paint pictures in the air" from the World War II front. Brimming with personalities and anecdotal detail, it also serves up a sharp-eyed account of where the craft went wrong after the war, when vanity and commercialism increasingly intruded."This is history at its best," said Ted Anthony of AP News.
How long before I get to them?.. heaven only knows!
