TOLSTOY AND THE PURPLE CHAIR by Nina Sankovitch | Kirkus ReviewsSo first off, can we talk about this cover? I want this chair so bad. Though the purple chair the author actually sits in to read is nowhere near this pretty, from her description of it. But eventually I will find myself the perfect reading chair and make myself a nook. That aside. The premise of this book is the author trying to come to terms with the death of her older sister, who she idolized. Her sister died of cancer, so they knew it was happening, but it was still a shock when she passed.

Elizabeth Nunez Goodreads Author. Address Unknown by Purplle Kressmann Taylor 4. I could sympathize with the young girl she had been when her best friend had moved away, leaving her forlorn and spending the summer reading 'Harriet the Spy'. Not running to escape but reading to escape. So 2,5 stars, and call me bitchy.
Tolstoy and the Purple Chair does not. A friend—let us call him Dave—once auditioned for the Jeopardy! They wanted me to say that I rode horses bareback and that I shot U. Os down while riding. Nobody wants to hear that you read. It is not considered a healthy thing for a person to do after they have graduated college. There is, no doubt, a lesson to be learned in this.
