I Still Love You – Why I am “Reading” The Corinthian

cover for The Corinthian

Holy cow, look at that price. Could I have read this book anymore to pieces?

Sometimes revisiting the past, comparing memory with present reality, is a painful process. I know when I visit home, it all seems so small. It’s not a shock really. I was a lot smaller when I lived there, but it still surprises me. I think I make adjustments in my memory.

It can happen with books, too. I’ve tracked down childhood favorites and found some still deliver delight, while others, not so much. Anne of Green Gables, A Wrinkle in Time, even Jade still carry me back to remembered delight. I’m a little sad when I pay a visit and realize that some books were written for who I was, not who I am.

One author that I still love, love, love, is Georgette Heyer. She not only gave me hours and hours of delight, she—IMHO—taught me to write. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, reading her was a Master Class in writing, particularly in character creation. When I need comfort, when I need to smile, when I need the familiar, I pull one or more of her books off my keeper shelf and browse my favorite passages.

When I was lured (by Richard Armitage and Audible) into trying Heyer in audio, I got an unexpected benefit from this new adventure in “reading.” Having someone read her words to me has resulted in a greater appreciation and enjoyment of her word craft. The only problem I have with the audio books? All her books aren’t available for my listening delight. And often a “new” release is just a new narration of book already out.

Then I heard that The Corinthian was going to release sometime this year and I’ve been haunting Audible, watching and waiting for it. So, while not working on this blog post, I hopped over “just to take a look” and there it was! The Corinthian in audio! I’m making myself not listen and get this post done, but I can hear it calling me to come listen.

“The company, ushered by a disapproving butler into the yellow salon of Sir Richard Wyndham’s house on St. James Square, comprised two ladies and one reluctant gentleman.”

And so begins The Corinthian. Heyer’s books often begin quietly, but they deliver well-crafted stories and delightfully quirky characters.

Do you have an author that you still love after all these years? Have you tried audio books? You know I’m curious and I enter all comments into my monthly drawing for an AnaBanana gift basket ($25 value). I announce a winner the first blog post of the new month. 🙂
