It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
And I'm still stringing along reading The Line of Beauty, which I love and don't want to end. I said on Twitter the other day that when you've got a Hollinghurst book in one hand and John Waters in the other, everything else just seems dull by comparison. Boring and badly written is the exact way I put it and while that may be a slight overstatement, sometimes you read a book that brings such sheer enjoyment that you wonder how anything else can hold up. That's the case with these two!
And granted, they are two very different books. Beauty is depressing but gloriously written; Carsick is riotously funny, obscene and crazy and Waters' narration on the audio brings it to dizzying insane life.
