    I will have to get that, I really enjoyed “Mad, bad and dangerous to know” before reading it I had an irrational dislike of him after seeing him interviewed, now I am in awe of the master!

    I am currently reading about the collapse of the French facing the WW2 German invasion in Dunkirk by Julian Thompson, my area sure has seen its share of warfare.

    I loved that book! I presume you’d already read Life after Life?

    It’s a shame you’re reading them in the wrong order, but you’ll still love Life after Life I’m sure.

    Well I’m blowed, I’m reading Life After Life at the moment, almost finished it. I am enjoying it, but find it a bit strange.

    I’m a fan of Kate Atkins’ books, especially those featuring Jackson Brodie. Like joeblk I bought a God In Ruins first, for a sovereign from a charity shop. When I realised it is the sequel to Life After Life, I ordered a second hand copy of that from Amazon so I’d read them in the correct order.

    Her Jackson Brodie books are definitely (to me) bloke-ish, not the sort of thing I’d expect from a very tasty lady writer.
