There seems to be plenty of copies of Double Bind available on Amazon - used & new. I haven't had a chance to go to any bookshops yet & see what's there.

By the way Sea of Poppies is real rubbish. Double Bind it is, and has anyone read the Booker Prize winner The White Tiger? I think it's TERRIFIC, much recommended.

Not that I am a member! but I am being quite impressed by Jean Athill's Somewhere Towards the End, about old age. Sounds deeply boring, but isn't.

We talked about Somewhere towards the End at lunch club on Friday and it sounds really good.

Not that I'm a member either, but there are some fantastic books fairly new out in paperback at the moment.

The new Hari Kunzru (my revolutions), the new Hanif Kureishi (something to tell you), and the new Tobias Hill (the hidden) are all excellent, imho.

...if you press it, they will come.
