W. Tipping Point - Malcolm Gladwell
God I was boring when I was reading this - he brings out the half-baked pseudo-sociologist in me.
L. Don't let's go to the dogs tonight - Alexandra Fuller
I loved this book. And cried a lot. It was all about a family even more crazy than mine.
W. Disgrace - J.M Coetzee
Laura's favourite, my time-filler.
(Laura says what a dick)
L. Five - Doris Lessing
This is a South African corker. Written 50 odd years ago, it's depressing how much is still the same.
W. Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Stieg Larson
Out-thrills Dan Brown as a thrilling thriller
L. Red Dust - Gillian Slovo
All about truth and reconciliation. I'm starting to feel a bit worthy.
W. Zanzibar Chest - Aidan Hartley
Amazing life of a death-wish journalist in the right place for all the Wrong Times.
L. Jump - Nadine Gordimer
I can still smell one of the rooms she described.
W. The Other Hand - Chris Cleave
Kinda lightweight beach book. In a death-in-Africa way.
L. Dark Star Safari - Paul Theroux
Just finished this one. PT became my second travelling friend on this trip. The best bit was when our paths crossed as I read his descriptions of places I was in. He was a big old grump at times but I became very fond of him.
W. The brief wondrous life of Oscar Wao - Junot Diaz
Yeah, pretty good.
