Esmond and Ilia, An Unreliable Memoir - Marina Warner

This book feels like an easter basket that has traveled all over the world - Warner's unreliable memoir reads like people think, scattered and beautiful. An 'Old World' story of parents/family, of movement, war, and bookshop love. It's alsoan NYRB so that means something as well, *and when we take a 'look how thick this book is' photo, we mean just that. It's big, but not too big. Like newish copy.
