Inspired by the story of the Nella Dan, a real ship that serviced the Antarctic stations between 1962 and 1987, When the Night Comes is a gentle, elegiac love note to a time, a place and a very special ship.
Favel has very kindly agreed to give us a peek at her bookshelves so without further ado....
Welcome to my Bookshelves, with Favel Parrett
More of my absolute favourites - Per Petterson is an author I read over and over and over. I can’t get enough. I think he is one of the greatest writers I have read. Maya Angelou had a huge impact on me - she taught me about rhythm and voice. She still teaches me most days. We lost a bright light when she died earlier this year. And MAPS - I love maps or all kinds. Old and new.
