The Blog and the Blogger
My name is David Hebblethwaite, and I’m a reader and book blogger from Yorkshire, now living in the south of England. I enjoy reading books from around the world, and have a particular interest in fiction in translation.
I describe my favourite type of book as ‘short and sharp (or strange, or strong)’ – think Muriel Spark, Han Kang: that sort of book. This blog is where I try to explore why I like the books that I do, and what it means to like them in the first place.
If you’d like to contact me, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m happy to accept review copies; if you think you have a book that would interest me, please get in touch. I’m particularly interested in the following sort of books:
- World literature and fiction in translation
- Short and sharp/strange/strong
- Short fiction
- Books from small publishers
Please note that I run this blog in my spare time, on top of a full time job. I try my best to be timely, but I can’t guarantee when, or at what length, I’ll cover a particular book. If that is fine with you, do go ahead and drop me a line.
