I just returned from a local school’s book fair where the featured speaker was Vendela Vida, author of the recently released The Diver’s Clothes Lie Empty. What a lovely person Ms. Vida seems to be, which is, of course, irrelevant, but still–I think the world needs more lovely people. She read from her new novel, and now I can’t wait to read it!
You’ll remember from one of my earlier WHIRL posts that I loved her novel The Lovers. (Click here to see what I had to say about that.) This new book seems to be exploring themes of identity–of who we are and what shapes who we become. Written in the second person, this sounds like a book Literary Masters members would love to ‘dig deep’ into!
Have you read The Diver’s Clothes Lie Empty? What did you think?
