Letters to Jude

Lawless, James
Unable to find emotional rapport with his wife, Lil, with whom he shares a childless marriage, middle-aged and ailing librarian Leo Lambkin begins a correspondence with an old flame, Bernarda, who writes to him after she hears of the tragic death of his mother.

Black Dragonfly

Pasley, Jean
"This is the story of the writer, Lafcadio Hearn, a complex and troubled man, as he tries to come to terms with his life and at the same time, negotiate the ancient, mysterious and fast-changing civilisation of nineteenth century Japan. Handled with great delicacy and empathy, from start to finish, Black Dragonfly is a pure pleasure to read." --- Christine Dwyer Hickey
