Interestiing blog: Tom Conoboy
This blog, by writer Tom Conoboy (whose name croppeth up regularly on competition lists) is always very interesting.
Recently, he mentioned a book that was so SO formative to me, L'Etranger, by Albert Camus. It made me think, how much are we 'formed' by meeting these books as teenagers (I 'did'it for A level) and how much do they hit home because they speak to something that is in us anyway?
Camus' themes circle round isolation, marginalisation. Those are mine. So I asked the question, and there's an interesting dialogue going on.
