Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Email this review to a friend.

Shaffer, Mary Ann and Barrows, Annie(2008)
Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

The Society was born one night in German-occupied Guernsey as a ruse created on the spot to escape punishment for breaking curfew. Its history is told in an exchange of letters between its members and a writer who finds the topic a promising one for her next book. The resulting tale is one of the most charming this reviewer has read in a long time. Through the unique vehicle of personal correspondence, the writers present an amazing mix of eccentric and heroic characters in a story ranging from hilarious to tragic. No book lover should miss this one.
