Wednesday, February 3, 2016: The Charleston Library Society has four new books in the Biographies & Memoirs section. The new titles this week include "Margaret Thatcher: From Grantham to the Falklands," "Stalin's Daughter: The Extraordinary and Tumultuous Life of Svetlana Alliluyeva," and "The World's Largest Man: A Memoir."
A brilliant - and rather transgressive - collection of short stories. Review by Horsley book group. All of our book group found this a really interesting book of short stories. Every story is very different. A look at a short biography of the writer also gives a greater insight to many of them especially the first short story and the last which is “The assassination of Margaret Thatcher”. Read and enjoyed. Rated out of 10:9 #bookclubread
