Last week I finished two short novels, Never Mind, by Edward St. Aubyn, and Life Form, by Amelie Nothomb. I loved them both in different ways. Never Mind is the first of the Patrick Melrose series; I definitely want to finish reading all the books now. Life Form was a strange and wonderful book about authors, writing and creating fiction. I'll write reviews this week.
Now I've got two new books going. Happy Ending by Francesca Duranti is about a weekend gathering of family at an Italian estate. I could see it as a very arty movie. More Beer, by Jakob Arjouni, is the second Kemal Kayankaya series crime novel, about environmental activists and the murder of the owner of a chemical plant. It's entertaining and enjoyable.
