Upon browsing the rows of shelves in Book Sale at SM San Lazaro, I chanced upon a hardback entitled The Crimson Petal and the White with a nice cover art, which just screams Victorian, with an equally attractive price of P38.  Surely, a price you cannot refuse.

Upon reaching home, I immediately googled the author, Michel Faber, and I could say that I’m quite happy with the results.  Here’s a nice profile from Bookreporter.com:

Michel Faber’s work has been described as a combination of Roald Dahl and Franz Kafka, as Somerset Maugham shacking up with Ian McEwan.
