I’m afraid I’ve been missing lately. I had a fabulous holiday, and then when I came back to work, there was all the work which piled up when I was away patiently waiting for me to come back. Still, I do have great memories of two terrific weeks. I read a couple of books while I was away that I loved – Triburbia by Greenfeld which I’ll talk about next week, and A M Homes’ May We Be Forgiven. This is the story of two brothers, one a history professor who is writing a neverending biography of Nixon, the other a television executive with money and power who is involved in a horrific accident. He’s jailed for this, and it’s the aftereffects of this crime that we follow as they ripple through the family. The book is a satire on contemporary America, and it’s a knockout.
