    Ummm, no, I think it was the Journal of a Solitude. I get all mixed up in these threads!

    Ah, oops, sorry, got hold of the wrong end of the novel there.

    I looked up Elif Shafak and she has written several novels. I might look up some in my virtual libraries. I can't imagine you enjoying a book that tells you how to stay sane, Kat. I can't imagine me doing that either!
    I enjoy reading diverse writers from around the world and the book I just picked up is called The Return and it's a Pulitzer prize winning novel by a Libyan writer, Hisham Matar. Will review after I finish reading it!

    Working on reading Murakami's The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle which, to my surprise, reminds me in tone and 'cultural' psychology to Forster's Passage to India, which makes no sense whatever, but who knows where one's sense of personal analogies comes from? And I must assume Jay Rubin's translation from the original Japanese is sensitive to both details of content and nuances of tone. This is my first Murakami novel and I'm very impressed. Intend to read more.

    If there are any readers here of historical fiction, memoirs, etc, please do suggest some of your favorite books! I would love to know.

    Joe Abercrombie's First Law trilogy is historical fiction, more on the fantasy side of it but historical nonetheless.

    My favourites
    Hillary Mantel for fiction.
    Christopher Hill for non-fiction, 'The world turned upside down' was particularly readable.
    A new story

    I finally got 'A Family Business' recorded and loaded, all 37 mins of it, much longer than any I have done before.
