Mainly fiction this month I seem to have read very few non fiction this year in the end. Only 9 read – but some good ones among them.
Special mention should go to:
In other rooms other wonders – Daniyal Mueenuddin – excellent linked short stories set mainly in Pakistan.
Cranford and other stories – Elizabeth Gaskell – simply marvellous and should need no other description.
The Book and the Brotherhood – Iris Murdoch – a really good Murdoch with a marvellously memorable bit about a Parrot.
Odd that I should have read so many short stories this month when I don’t often bother with them
