New Book for teen book group is Bone People by New Zealander Keri Hulme who seems not to have written another book. Maybe she's published in New Zealand. I'd forgotten how much of a memoir Bone People seems. The narrator's name is one letter different and she describes herself to resemble the pictures I've seen of Keri Hulme. Can she possibly live in the tower she describes as her abode. Surely a metaphor. Bone People was a Booker winner though. I'm still hung over from Of Human Bondage which seems to dwarf the other books coming into my life now. I think I'll go after The Razor's Edge.
