Picked up from the table at the New Year's Meeting in Café ZwartWit. This looks like an enjoyable memoir. We also used to know a Mrs Fish, coincidentally.

Maybe this is a nice story if you are into horses or if you were a child during and after WWII and grew up at a large farmhouse with eccentric parents and went on hunting parties. I couldnot relate very much to this story and this was hampered even more by the strange writing style: some full sentences, but often only parts of sentences with lots of dots in between. Just brushstrokes, mere impressions of what happened. You never get the full story, never get to know what really goes on in the protagonist's head. Not my kind of book. I did finish it, though, which is nothing short of a miracle really :). On the back cover, it was said that the final chapter would move me to tears, well, it didnot. Concerning the title of this book: I donot understand why Mrs Fish is mentioned. Her part in the story is only minor (or I must have missed something?). There are lots of photos in the book, but whithout captions, so sometimes you havenot the slightest idea what you are looking at. I did like the little drawings, though.
