This months’ reviewed book was not the sort to be washed down lightly with a wine glass full of something nondescript and fleeting. I needed a wine that was large and robust enough to suit the conversation. I guess I could have gone with a serious claret but circumstances are not always that amenable to me, namely the price tag. A couple of well appointed wines from South Australian seemed like as good a wine region as any to serve the perfect support act while discussing this incredible man’s journey.
After a bit of a break and a leap from Belize to California, I have started the wine and book comb night again - but this time it’s called Wines & Spines. This being our first get together, we did not come armed with a book to discuss. We, however, had no trouble providing suggested titles that were pulled randomly out of the wine bucket. Our next W&S book will be Scandalous Women by Elizabeth Kerri Mahon. She also has a blog.
