    As a tribute to children’s books writer Norton Juster who passed away on March 8, we have selected The Phantom Tollbooth as Kat’s Books & Wine Club as our April pick. Kat did post a homage to Juster on her social media, saying it “is in my top 5 books of all time and I’ve gotten a copy for everyone I care about. If you haven’t read it, it’s the perfect day 📖”

    This beloved story -first published more than fifty years ago- introduces readers to Milo and his adventures in the Lands Beyond.

    For Milo, everything’s a bore. When a tollbooth mysteriously appears in his room, he drives through only because he’s got nothing better to do. But on the other side, things seem different. Milo visits the Island of Conclusions (you get there by jumping), learns about time from a ticking watchdog named Tock, and even embarks on a quest to rescue Rhyme and Reason! Somewhere along the way, Milo realizes something astonishing. Life is far from dull. In fact, it’s exciting beyond his wildest dreams…

    In celebration of International Women’s Day, our piece of literature selected for Match does not come from Kat’s bookshelf, but from her pen. Compiled by Scarlett Curtis and published in 2018, Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (and Other Lies) is a collection of feminist essays.

    From Kat comes “The Catastrophizer’s Alphabet”, a poem where each letter of the alphabet stands for something that is part of a woman’s life… A short-sentenced cautionary tale that still manages to convey how being a woman in this world feels like.

    Celebrate the month of women’s history with this pick from Kat’s Books & Wine Club.

    Every month we pick a book we know to be one of Kat’s favourites or one she has picked up and showcased via social media. For the month of February, we picked Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray.

    Synopsis

    Written in his distinctively dazzling manner, Oscar Wilde’s story of a fashionable young man who sells his soul for eternal youth and beauty is the author’s most popular work. The tale of Dorian Gray’s moral disintegration caused a scandal when it first appeared in 1890, but though Wilde was attacked for the novel’s corrupting influence, he responded that there is, in fact, “a terrible moral in Dorian Gray.” Just a few years later, the book and the aesthetic/moral dilemma it presented became issues in the trials occasioned by Wilde’s homosexual liaisons, which resulted in his imprisonment. Of Dorian Gray’s relationship to autobiography, Wilde noted in a letter, “Basil Hallward is what I think I am: Lord Henry what the world thinks me: Dorian what I would like to be—in other ages, perhaps.

    Every month we pick a book we know to be one of Kat’s favourites or one she has picked up and showcased via social media. To start off 2021 the right way, we chose one of Kat’s recommendations from December, Dark Tales by Shirley Jackson, who happens to be one of Kat’s favourite authors.

    Synopsis

    After the publication of her short story “The Lottery” in the New Yorker in 1948 received an unprecedented amount of attention, Shirley Jackson was quickly established as a master horror storyteller. This collection of classic and newly reprinted stories provides readers with more of her unsettling, dark tales, including the “The Possibility of Evil” and “The Summer People.” In these deliciously dark stories, the daily commute turns into a nightmarish game of hide and seek, the loving wife hides homicidal thoughts and the concerned citizen might just be an infamous serial killer. In the haunting world of Shirley Jackson, nothing is as it seems and nowhere is safe, from the city streets to the crumbling country pile, and from the small-town apartment to the dark, dark woods. There’s something sinister in suburbia.

    Every month we pick a book we know to be one of Kat’s favourites or one she has picked up and showcased via social media. For December, we picked the cult classic It by Stephen King.

    Synopsis

    Welcome to Derry, Maine … It’s a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real … They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they are grown-up men and women who have gone out into the big world to gain success and happiness. But none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them back to Derry to face the nightmare without an end, and the evil without a name.

    Every month we pick a book we know to be one of Kat’s favourites or one she has picked up and showcased via social media. For October, we picked The Dark Secret of Weatherend by John Bellairs, the second volume of the Anthony Monday Mysteries. Kat seems to really enjoy juvenile gothic adventures so who are we to deny them?

    Synopsis

    When Anthony Monday stumbles upon the diary of J.K. Borkman, he thinks he’s unearthed a worthless piece of junk. But Borkman’s mysterious writings turn out to be much more–plans to turn the world into an icy wasteland. By the time ghastly weather sets in and Anthony realizes it’s Borkman’s fanatical son who is bent on carrying out his father’s horrific work, it may be too late to stop him.

    Every month we pick a book we know to be one of Kat’s favourites or one she has picked up and showcased via social media. For September, we picked On Being Blue by William H. Gass, offering a philosophical journey through the colour blue.

    Synopsis

    Of the colors, blue and green have the greatest emotional range. Sad reds and melancholy yellows are difficult to turn up. Among the ancient elements, blue occurs everywhere: in ice and water, in the flame as purely as in the flower, overhead and inside caves, covering fruit and oozing out of clay. Although green enlivens the earth and mixes in the ocean, and we find it, copperish, in fire; green air, green skies, are rare. Gray and brown are widely distributed, but there are no joyful swatches of either, or any of the exuberant black, sullen pink, or acquiescent orange. Blue is therefore most suitable as the color of interior life. Whether slick light sharp high bright think quick sour new and cool or low deep sweet dark soft slow smooth heavy old and warm: blue moves easily among them all, and all profoundly qualify our states of feeling.

    We are kicking off the month of August with a new monthly feature, inspired by the mutual fondness Kat and myself share for books. Every month we will pick a book we know to be one of Kat’s favourites or one she has picked up and showcased via social media. It’s a cosy little way of getting acquainted with her a bit more personally.

    For August, we picked We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson, “one of my favorite writers of all time. If you like a little fright and beautiful stories that stay in your noggin forever, give her a read”.

    Synopsis

    My name is Mary Katherine Blackwood. I am eighteen years old, and I live with my sister Constance. I have often thought that with any luck at all I could have been born a werewolf, because the two middle fingers on both my hands are the same length, but I have had to be content with what I had. I dislike washing myself, and dogs, and noise, I like my sister Constance, and Richard Plantagenet, and Amanita phalloides, the death-cap mushroom. Everyone else in my family is dead…
