2022 ABIA Longlisted- These Precious Days by Ann Patchett – Our Review
This author needs little introduction, she has authored many other renowned titles like, ‘The Dutch House,’ ‘Commonwealth’ and my favourite ‘State of Wonder’. With her flawless credentials she gives us short stories tracking her life, decisions and the pathways to developing these books. She clearly details the writers who influenced her and why, giving true insight into her journey.
I have not enjoyed a book this much in some time, I laughed and cried through many cups of tea. Ann Patchett shone the light clearly on what makes someone with this talent stay fresh and relevant in todays world.
An exceptional person makes exceptional writer and storyteller. My favourite read this year!
