Good morning, so far...
The postman delivered this little lot of goodies early this morning:
(i) THE BOY WHO WENT AWAY by Eli Gotlieb
(ii) a compendium of Henry Green novels - LIVING, LOVING, PARTY GOING (you know how sometimes you keep hearing the same name recommended again and again...? I think Eli Gotlieb's recommendation was the final straw, which brings me so very neatly to
(ii) FINAL STRAW - another album by Snow Patrol and
(iii) THIS DESERT LIFE - an album by COUNTING CROWS
and (iv) a little bit of work for me to do (editing someone's manuscript).
So after a swift download I shall be out in my shed for the foreseeable future (or at least until elevenses when Hodmandod Minor usually rises).
First though, I shall be reading at this: a very interesting-looking article on Kafka by P.D. Smith on '3 Quarks Daily'.
