Nellibobs Recommends…Willa Cather

The supreme Brian Nellist a.k.a Nellibobs is back with another illuminating insight into what he’s been reading. In this instalment, he highly and wholeheartedly recommends O Pioneers! by Willa Cather…

If you want to have the real-life Nellibobs reading experience, there’s still plenty of time to sign up to Brian’s Dorset Delights course  at Birkenhead Central Library. The course takes place each Thursday morning, 10.30am-12.30pm for the next nine weeks, exploring literature inspired by the county. Places on the course cost £60; £50 for pensioners, students and those on income support; £40 for Get Into Reading members and £30 for GIR members receiving income support.

  1. By coincidence, I read Willa Cather’s short story ‘A Death in the Desert’ the other day. It’s a very good story about family, identity and love, and it’s difficult to know how to feel at the end of it. I doubt if I were to film a review of it I would be able to give it half as much gusto as Brian unfortunately. More Nellibobs!
