About

I refuse to talk about myself in the third person.

My name is Ruth.  I’ve never studied English Literature, but I’ve read lots of books. I have a degree in Art History, but mostly concentrated on photography and cinema, including a 12,000 word dissertation on the Carry On films as an expression of Bakhtin’s Carnivalesque.

I love to write.  I’m a serial blogger and have written about neuroscience, popular culture, art, craft and cookery. I also write short stories and sometimes poetry.

I love to read.  I don’t have a favourite genre, but mostly read literary fiction.  I’m not really into crime, science fiction or romance, but as long as they’re well written, I’d give them a try.

This isn’t a book review blog in the strictest sense, just a space to discuss all things book related.

I’m happy to receive book recommendations or hear your thoughts on bookish things too, so why not leave a comment?
