Quickies on a Sunday!

Audio book 'Silence' by Shusaku Endo-  Available on Audible.  Like Brian Moore's 'Black robe' and due (according to The Guardian's Sue Arnold) to be made into a film starring the great Daniel Day-Lewis.  A sort of hideous torture leading to spiritual conversion theme!

'The Elegance of the Hedgehog' by Muriel Barbery Trans Alison Anderson Narr by the utterly brilliant Barbara Rosenblatt and Cassandra Morris on Audible.

'Perpetual Euphoria'  by Pascal Bruckner-might be worth a look.

'Alternative and Activist New Media' by Leah A Liedrouw

'Overconnected'  William H Davidow

'I shall not hate:  A Gaza Doctor's journey'  Izzeldin Abuelaish

'Solar' by Ian McEwan-Comedy from the melancholic genius-we really should check that out.

'The Ask' Sam Lypsyte  "One of the funniest and most straight-out brilliant novels of the last few years." (Nicola Barr)  Such reviewers comments always come with a warning but it does get my attention.


Who ever knew that Tim Leary wrote a novel and that it has this title?



Gareth Knight artwork from his Journal-'Quadrigal'-I like it!

A beautiful pen holder for a Moleskine notebook-The Quiver.  One of those little things that makes you think erm...that could improve my life.

Check some of this out and get back to me if they're good!
Have a great Sunday and spare a thought for the freedom fighters in the Middle East!

Success to your work!
