Holiday reading so far: Kate Atkinson, Emotionally Weird (not her best, I think, but laugh-out-loud funny); Julian Barnes, Flaubert’s Parrot (re-read with enormous pleasure); Ivan Turgenev, Rudin (Turgenev’s first novel, which I’d never read before; again not his best but I enjoyed it a lot); Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby (decades since I read this: but surely comparatively over-rated, no?); currently Anthony Horowitz, The House of Silk (Holmes pastiche, huge fun). And no logic books.
