The Cat's Table (Vintage International) by Michael Ondaatje
The Cat's Table (Vintage International)

Judy Martin, January 1, 2013

Three boys have the run of a ship on a voyage from Ceylon to England in the 50’s. Their daring antics, cautious friendships,interactions with adult table-mates at “the least privileged place” on the ship, and the narrator's observations about intrigue and romance among shipmates add up to an engaging, memorable novel.

The Bullfighter Checks Her Makeup by Susan Orlean
The Bullfighter Checks Her Makeup

Judy Martin, November 27, 2010

The subtitle, My Encounters With Extraordinary People, hints at these engaging essays. Orlean is a genius at revealing personality and person (as she did so well in The Orchid Thief). This is terrific vacation reading!
