Wide Open - Nicola Barker

Wide Open - Nicola Barker

Who bought it: Me.

What is it: Looks like a small town novel that casts a girl with freaky organs. Middlesex, anyone? Besides, the title and book cover of clams wide open are hinting at something sexual.

When: September 3, 2011

Where: Book Sale – Edsa Central

Why: It’s an IMPAC winner. The blurb boasts of having beaten Cunningham, Morrison, and Roth. But really, I don’t know who Barker is.

How much: Php 75.00
