    Just ordered a copy of 'No Country For Old Men' by Cormac McCarthy. Having previously enjoyed the film very much a couple of times, I thought I'd check the book out.

    Default 1Q84

    1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. It's the first time I'm reading one of his books. I'm liking it so far.

    Default Just finished....

    'Noriko Smiling', by Adam Mars-Jones, which is an extended essay on Ozu's Late Spring [1949], published by Notting Hill Editions in 2011. Appallingly written - the author must have been/is a journalist.

    Have just finished re-reading 'The Woman in White' by Wilkie Collins (a cracking good read) and Volume 4 of the Diaries of Virginia Woolf. Am about to start 'The Oval Window' by J H Prynne.

    Just pre-ordered Tomblands, the latest Matthew Shardlake novel by C J Sansom. It's not out until October but I enjoyed the previous books so much I don't mind the wait. Very detailed and historically accurate murder mysteries set in Tudor England.

    Read Prynne's 'Unanswering Rational Shore' a couple of years ago - quite an experience!

    Running a Hotel on the Roof of the World by Alec Le Sueur (ISBN 1 84024 106 3)

    "Le Sueur provides us with the means of improving our knowledge of a far away country about which we know little. Fawlty Towers goes to Tibet"

    A very funny read about managing the Holiday Inn hotel in Lhasa, Tibet in the late '80s. Interestingly enough, I stayed there around the time written about in the book.


    Now

    Baking Cakes in Kigali by Gaile Parkin (ISBN 978 1 84354 7471)

    If you are a fan of 'The Number 1 Ladies' Detective Agency' series (which I am) you will like this. Again simple, gentle, amusing and perceptive observations of the customers of the cakemaker and of society in general in Kigali, Rwanda.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
