Congratulations also to Candi Miller for hitting the shortlist with Salt & Honey. I read this very recently and I just can't get it out of my mind. An absolutely stunning novel - the culmination of years of research, transformed by Miller's love for Southern Africa and her burning, poetic imagination - I'm thrilled that it's going to receive the exposure it deserves as a result of Books To Talk About.
Now, how am I going to square my nascent plan to read the other eight books on the list with my recent vow of abstemiousness on the book-buying front??? The TBR pile is TOO BIG already. But . . . some of these do look absolutely necessary, somehow, don't they?
