Turtle Diary (New York Review Books Classics)

Russell Hoban


lifestyles in a urban might be atomizing, setting apart. And it definitely is for William G. and Neaera H., the strangers on the heart of Russell Hoban’s strangely heartwarming novel Turtle Diary. William, a clerk at a used-book shop, lives in a rooming condominium after a divorce that has left him with no domestic or relatives. Neaera is a winning author of children’s books, who, in her personal estimation, “looks just like the type of spinster who doesn’t continue cats and isn't a vegetarian. Looks…like a man’s girl who hasn’t bought a man.” completely unknown to one another, they're either attracted to the turtle tank on the London zoo with “minds filled with turtle thoughts,” considering how the turtles may be freed. after which comes the day whilst Neaera walks into William’s bookshop, and jointly they shape an not going partnership to make what appeared a loopy dream turn into a fact.
