    PDF weplayit.co ç The Comforters Kindle ê comforters kindle, The Comforters KindleSpark’s debut is a sizzling multi character romp with an unexpected metafictive subplot and an unexpected Grandma’s smuggled diamonds into loaves of bread subplot amongst other sub and foreplots Read the Ali Smith preface in this edition then find an edition with a less revolting cover to read the actual novel The pace sags but the novel sings Metafictioneers take note of this one Spark predates Barth et al by a decade
