A Day in the Life of a Smiling Woman
Great book for the commute
I really enjoyed reading Drabble's "The Millstone" so I when I saw that a collection of her short stories was being published I was keen to read it. The stories are perfect for reading too and from work, with a 30 minute commute I could usually
finish one in the morning and one in the evening. I loved how they are ordered according to the date they were written, Drabble's consistency throughout her writing career is remarkable. When I got to a story which mentioned "Waterstones" I knew I was reading a more recent one but other than that the stories are timeless.
