Recent Reading

The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters, excellent but some graphic scenes hard to read.

Man at the Helm by Nina Stibbe.   Re-read, comedy with sad undertones

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr    Long, set in WW2 in St Malo mostly.  Interesting but slow perhaps

Letters to the Lost by Iona Grey.   Good, romantic

Orkney Twilight by Clare Carson, good scenery

Some Luck by Jane Smiley, kind of depressing but will probably read next in series

The Night Falling by Katherine Webb, unusual setting in early-Fascist Italy, interesting

The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August.  Did not finish, must try again
