Garden at the end of August. Recent reading.
Recent reading:Much enjoyed Case Histories by Kate Atkinson. This is the first of her crime(ish) novels I’ve read. Quite complicated – I had to concentrate hard on who was who in the four case histories. All solved in the end, of course, by the suitably jaded private investigator Brodie, though I had my doubts about the daughter slasher case. The killer wasn't foreshadowed enough, imo!
Currently reading Human Croquet, also by KA. I was put off by the weird start but love it now I’m half way along. She is such a strong, amusingly sardonic writer.
