Thanks for your book, Love, Nina. It made me laugh.
It made me wish I’d had a long city/overseas adventure that meant I wrote newsy letters to my sister (actually, I don’t have a sister but if I did, I’m sure she’d be a top person to correspond with, just like Vic).
You reminded me that letters don’t need to be deep or heavy on big-ticket emotions – there’s lots to love in the detail of everyday life.
I learned about all sorts of funny things, such as the rights of King Charles Spaniels and that coddled eggs are for wimps. Plus you’re dead-right about Romeo and Juliet.
I think S & W were lucky to have you as a nanny – clearly you did an ace job (even if you didn’t wear shoes and lost the saw).
P.S. For most of the book I was thinking ‘What’s with you and Nunney?!’
P.P.S. If we ever meet, at a book-signing or such, I’d like to see the ‘mouth in a perfect square’ trick. Thanks
I received my copy of Love, Nina from the publisher, Little Brown and Company, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. I give it a 3.5/5.
