November 2011.......... 6 books read
Pauline McLynn – Something For The Weekend
Jimmy Breslin – I Don’t Want To Go To Jail
John McCabe – Paper
James McClure – The Song Dog
Jake Arnott – The Long Firm
James Dodson – Final Rounds
All six of these were start-stop-start again books that previously hadn’t floated my boat.
If I was ever to write a book myself, it might be titled............I’d Rather Go To Jail In Preference To Reading Anything Else By McLynn or Breslin!
Others were ok, nothing stand out.
Book of the month for no other reason than it had a cool cover.....McClure’s Song Dog.........pre-Apartheid black and white pairing of policemen in South Africa. I think it’s the first in his series, though not the earliest written.
