Reading material

After taking three months to wade through Vanity Fair, I followed it up with "Doctored Evidence" by Donna Leon, a better-than-average detective thriller set in Venice. Compared with Thackeray's epic, it zipped along at a cracking pace. It was recommended on Radio 4's A Good Read which I use to pick out modern works of fiction.

Next is Jim Moir's autobiography, "Me:Moir". My copy is autographed by the great man with a personal comment: "Fear not art". Wise words indeed.

Did you see Mr Moir on the anti-art doc the other night.
He should do his own series.

He's always watchable, Mr Moir. His surreal personal memoirs are very readable indeed. Recommended.
