So here are your suggestions for authors, I haven’t tried:
Martin Cruz Smith
Clive King (“Stig of the Dump” – assume that is name of work rather than author’s pseudonym)
Robert Le Carre
Beryl Markham (keeping up with comments)
Colm Toibin (actually I have read “The Blackwater Lightship and wouldn’t mind trying another, so I’m not sure he counts).
Emile Zola – My husband says I would like “Au Bonheur des Dames” it’s all about shopping and women.
Anyone else you want to suggest adding? I’ll give all of the above a go. I will add them to the list of well-reviewed, interesting sounding books which I have typed on a piece of paper and folded up in the back of my diary. You don’t believe me? Do.
So that’s it for another NaBloPoMo. Hats off to the fair Mrs. Kennedy for co-ordinating. I am not only saying that in the hope of getting a random prize.
Thank you also to my regular commenters during the month. I am hopeless at replying to comments but I love and treasure every one; without you I would have given it all up as a bad job.
The man going down to the basement to put out the laundry has just looked over my shoulder and said “NaBloPoGo”. Maybe I should stop now.
One final item of news; Daniel broke his glasses yesterday. Sigh.
