Recent Reads

Finally got to read Last Orders by Graham Swift. It's very good. I must confess though I kept getting the characters mixed up in my head. The women weren't very individually identifiable and two of the guys were named Victor and Vince which is a bit close in my head. I did enjoy it a lot though. Haven't seen the film.

I love everything by Kate Atkinson. One Good Turn
is interconnected dialogues by very different characters with great back stories about a murder set around the Edinburgh Festival. Highly recommended. Also Case Histories

which introduces the character Jackson Brodie and the lovely, magical realism short stories in Not the End of the World
