WHAT I BOUGHT TODAY ...
Arthur & George (Jonathan Cape, 2005) / Julian Barnes
Labyrinth (Orion, 2005) / Kate Mosse
Some Hope: A Trilogy (Picador, 2006) / Edward St. Aubyn
A tragic aristocratic dysfunction of epic proportions. Comprising three of St. Aubyn’s earlier novels: Some Hope (1994); Bad News (1992); and Never Mind (1992). These books were combined as The Patrick Melrose Trilogy in 1998. And now repackaged and retitled as Some Hope: A Trilogy.
The Book of Secrets (1994) / M.G. Vassanji
The In-Between World of Vikram Lall (2003) / M.G. Vassanji
Bartleby & Co. (Harvill, 2004) / Enrique Vila-Matas (trans. from the Spanish, Bartleby y Compania, by Jonathan Dunne) (2000; 2004)
Excellent but not exactly for everyone.
