Welcome to the Home Page of David and Alice Park

Per correr migliori acque alza le vele
   ormai la navicella del mio ingegno
   che lascia dietro a sé mar sì crudele.

For better waters heading with the wind
   My ship of genius now shakes out her sail
   And leaves that ocean of despair behind.
Opening lines of Dante's Il Purgatorio
Dorothy L. Sayers Translation

Alice J. Park: 28 November 1933 - 31 March 2013 In Memoriam

We love to read books aloud together. We find it much more enjoyable than watching movies or television. If you pick the right books, there is always something interesting to discuss. We will often present here short reviews of some of the books we have enjoyed. We hope you too will find something enjoyable among them.
