#BookBingo – Round 15

Now this one was a perfect match! This round also gives me a horizontal line filled, so bingo!

A book with a place in the title:

The French Photographer by Natasha Lester

…this is my favourite novel by Natasha Lester. I’d go so far as to say that it is her best yet. There’s a strength to the writing in this novel, a reckoning with regards to her themes that just elevates this novel into a class of its own. It’s brilliant, insightful, and wrenching; an ode to all of the women who fought for their right as journalists and photographers to report on WWII. History is rife with inequalities against women, and here, in The French Photographer, Natasha rips the dust cloth off and shakes out the rot that is steeped into the history of women in journalism, exposing it all, in its shocking and distasteful glory.

For 2019, I’m teaming up with Mrs B’s Book Reviews and The Book Muse for an even bigger, and more challenging book bingo. We’d love to have you join us. Every second Saturday throughout 2019, we’ll post our latest round. We invite you to join in at any stage, just pop the link to your bingo posts into the comments section of our bingo posts each fortnight so we can visit you. If you’re not a blogger, feel free to just write your book titles and thoughts on the books into the comments section each fortnight, and tag us on social media if you are playing along that way.

  1. I’ve only ever read one of Natasha’s earlier books ‘What is Left Over, After,’ it was so good. I have a copy of Her Mother’s Secret which Natasha signed when I attended her author talk a while back.
    I chose ‘Themes of Culture’ for this round and read Deborah Rodriguez’s book The Little Coffee shop of Kabul. Not bad but I’m a little over reading books set in Afghanistan – not a country I’m particularly interested in.
