Re: Patrick McGrath

oooh, I really hate that! I once went around to about half a dozen book shops in order to locate a copy of Until I find you with straight pages... I didn't know it was a US edition phenomenon, though!

Re: Tarjei Vesaas

Wonderful to find a thread on Tarjei Vesaas here, Isslottet (The Ice Palace) is standard school syllabus in Norway, at least for us 30-somethings. I truly hope he still is, although nynorsk does have...

Re: Read of the Year 2007

I too read Atonement this year, and feel it will be near impossible to top!

Hmm... I see perhaps I shouldn't have read this thread now... have put some items for Christmas shopping in a basket at...

Re: Per Petterson: Out Stealing Horses

Thanks for the review, John! I read this book a few years back (in Norwegian), and wrote a review then for a book group I was in at the time. Have been digging through old e-mails trying to find my...

Re: Peter Ho Davies: The Welsh Girl

Looks very interesting. I'll definitely look out for this one! Do I perhaps smell a Booker nominee...?

Re: Kazuo Ishiguro

Yep, the Julian Barnes is Emma Bovary's Eyes.

I'm very happy about receiving the Granta issues. In Granta 7, there's the short story Summer After the War by Ishiguro. This Granta issue was first...

Re: Magnus Mills

I loved it! Explorers of the New Century is terrific Mills! I too read it without reading or knowing anything about it beforehand (the best way to approach a Mills book, I think!), also skipping the...

Re: Kazuo Ishiguro

Thanks, Stewart! I didn't even know about this magazine, but now I've ordered two issues including texts by Ishiguro (and McEwan, Julian Barnes etc etc). Jippie! :-D

Re: Kazuo Ishiguro

I didn't know Ishiguro had published short stories! Must must read! Does anyone know how to get hold of them? Didn't find anything on a search at Amazon...

Re: Susan Cooper: The Dark Is Rising Sequence

Ah, I'm so pleased you liked book no 2! :-D I think it's still my favourite of all five books. Have you seen, by the way, they're making a film (http://imdb.com/title/tt0484562/)? I noticed this...

Re: Philip Pullman: His Dark Materials

I read these books a while ago, so I don't remember all the details. But one of the storylines that have stayed with me very vividly, is the one about the mulefa, that John Self mentioned. I loved...

Re: Kazuo Ishiguro

And I've still got The Unconsoled untouched on my bookshelf, so I can't complain really. I see you're...

Re: Susan Cooper: The Dark Is Rising Sequence

And in that spirit, I'll correct myself. It's Captain Toms not Tom.

Re: Susan Cooper: The Dark Is Rising Sequence

Finished the series last night. I find it's always a bit sad to finish a novel, or perhaps even more, a series, saying goodbye to everyone. Difficult to say much about the books, really, without...

Re: Susan Cooper: The Dark Is Rising Sequence

Cool! But keep on going to the next volumes in the series too. In fact, I think the first volume is quite different from the rest of the books. There's much more to this whole universe than is...
