Comment on A Year in First Lines (2017) by Jane @ Beyond Eden Rock

What an interesting snapshot, suggesting a fine year in books. So many books from other English speaking countries aren't published in the UK - even those I spot when they are listed for awards - and so it's lovely to be able to keep an eye on you and others who are reading them.

Gosh, sold out already, but I'm not surprised. It is a perfect Christmas gift, and as I say, not just for Sydney people.

Thanks for this review - as an ex-Sydney reader my first reaction to Mirror Sydney was one of nostalgia - I looked to see whether my old stomping grounds got a mention - but like you, after a while I started looking at my current built environment and noticed change everywhere - the abandoned 1940s furniture store (Future Daydream Furniture - open 7 days) now losing it's verandah and heading for collapse, the ghost sign of the Galley Milk bar still in full sail, revealed when they removed a facade - makes me more determined to get out there with camera and notepad. (BTW I think they've sold out of the first print run - my Christmas gifts are on back order)

Will miss FW when it ends, but glad you have a new project for us to look forward to.

I already have a book lined up. It's called The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge by Rainer Maria Rilke. It is weird and strange but not long!
