Yet more incredible chart-related news from the paper press frontline; the happy chappies and chappettes (…is ‘chappettes’ a word? Is ‘chappies’?) over at exceptionally exceptional monthly publication The Fly have heard sufficient enough greatness in Sigh No More to put it at No. 13 in their Top 50 Albums of The Year list! Fantastiche!

    In this vein, but writing of another kind, is Butcher’s Crossing by John Williams. The novel is one of a few great novels about the American west or in this case, the end of the American west.

    Marcus, Great idea! Read ‘The other hand’ by Chris Cleave, very beautifully written and the way the story unfolds is unique. X

    I love this book although it is incomplete and only when you have read the other 2 books that make up McCarthys border trilogy will you realise the power of the writer. the fight scene in the final book is the most lifelike and disturbing fiction I have read.
    I have bought many copies of all the pretty horses to give to friends. I would agree fully with Marcus’s endorsment…everyone should read this book.
