The Twist in the Tale?



Just remember what happens when too much pressure is applied to the tail of a 
It can be a heartbreaking experience :-(
Peter Carey devotes a chapter to the drops in his 1988 novel,  

Most relationships take place in glass houses and 
don't hold up well when the stone throwing starts.
Diamonds may be a girls best friend,
but rocks can really wreck a home or relationship. 
And how possible is it to glue a  Prince Rupert's Drop
back together once twisted too far?

I'll back back to watch these trailers. Not familiar with this novel, but it looks good.

Never heard of a Prince Rupert's Drop before - but looked it up and watched the video. I am enlightened.

I met Peter Carey today at the BBWF and bought 3 of his books including
'The Chemistry of Tears'.
He hasn't been in Byron Bay since 1979.

When people ask him where he is from he tells them he is a Martian because he is from Bachus Marsh in Victoria.
I got him to sign my books to
'Darren the Australien'
and he really liked that name...he asked me how I came up with that name amusing name,so lets see if he pinches it for himself now.-)
