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
