Nellibobs Recommends…Willa Cather

Written by The Reader, 26th January 2012

The supreme Brian Nellist a.k.a Nellibobs is back with another illuminating insight into what he's been reading. In this instalment, he highly and wholeheartedly recommends O Pioneers! by Willa Cather...

If you want to have the real-life Nellibobs reading experience, there's still plenty of time to sign up to Brian's Dorset Delights course  at Birkenhead Central Library. The course takes place each Thursday morning, 10.30am-12.30pm for the next nine weeks, exploring literature inspired by the county. Places on the course cost £60; £50 for pensioners, students and those on income support; £40 for Get Into Reading members and £30 for GIR members receiving income support.

What a star!

Would love to be able to sample the Dorset Delights but regrettably work gets in the way.

By coincidence, I read Willa Cather’s short story ‘A Death in the Desert’ the other day. It’s a very good story about family, identity and love, and it’s difficult to know how to feel at the end of it. I doubt if I were to film a review of it I would be able to give it half as much gusto as Brian unfortunately. More Nellibobs!
