It was the best of times

Time for a post-holiday round-up post. So, just back from Somerset and Cornwall, stopping off on the way to read at the Poetry Cafe in Reading hosted by the ebullient AF Harrold. I had a good time and enjoyed the open mic readers, and was benevolently heckled by my own cousin.

Holiday reading was AF Harrold's Wodehouseish, Pratchetty comic novel The Education of Epitome Quirkstandard, Coetzee's amazing short novel Foe, the first three chapters of A Tale of Two Cities (may try again another time), and Mark Kurlansky's surprisingly good history of Cod.
