Author: Michael Palin | Publisher: Orion Books Ltd I’ve always loved Michael Palin’s style. I was an avid fan of his travel documentaries and his books have the same good pacing, sense of humour, and wonderfully vivid sense of place. I must confess, though, I’ve not read a single book by Hemingway. Is that too… Continue reading Hemingway Adventure
Author: Ben Aaronovitch | Publisher: Gollancz Martin gave the body the ‘London once-over’ – a quick glance to determine whether this was a drunk, a crazy or a human being in distress.
