Just finished GENTS (very short book). I enjoyed it and would like to know more about the author, Warwick Collins - maybe I shall investigate later. It is a light enjoyable read and I think its best quality is that it made me see the world from a different view-point.

Now starting WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN by Lionel Shriver which has been on my TBR list for ages.

Ah, but it was a short, easy one I have to say!

The book sounds interesting. I'm checking it out on Amazon.

Gents is terrific. I was lucky enough to read it earlier this year before it was republished, as a result of which part of my review got quoted on the back cover of the new edition!

Collins has also written a couple of historical novels, The Rationalist and The Marriage of Souls. I've read the first and it's excellent.

Ah, Mr Self - not the narrator of Matin Amis's MONEY, I hope! Yes, GENTS certainly packed a punch far more powerful than I thought it would.
