Summer’s here, so who better than Saint Etienne, the best band in all the world!
And… I’ve finally(!) finalised my holiday reading (I am a natural ditherer):
So, alongside Merce Rodereda and Elizabeth David which I wrote about earlier, I’ve also decided on an Agatha Christie which, last year, I found to be perfect holiday reading. Then a collection of short stories, ‘Pond’ by Claire-Louise Bennett. I loved Gwendoline Riley’s ‘First Love’ earlier this year and, just as my favourite writer, Shena Mackay, led me to Riley, I am hoping that Riley’s praise for Bennett in recent interviews will prove just as fruitful!
Mallorca, here I come!
