This will be the last mass market paperback post for the moment, though I will be returning to this sort of book later on.
The two Janwillem van de Wetering books below are not actually fiction, but rather his description of his experiences in Zen Buddhist monasteries in Japan and America, They are quite entertaining to read. He is best known for his series of detective novels set in Amsterdam featuring engaging detectives, Grijpstra and De Geir, which I will get to later on and have already mentioned in an earlier post.
So, onto my paperback collection of Kurt Vonnegut, published in the early to late 1970s – a mix of British and American editions.
And finally a rather pretty set of Edith Wharton novels published by Berkley in 1981.
Coming soon – Picador books
