So far I have the lovely bones and cocaine nights.
It's insipid shite.
It's one of Gerald Durrell's autobiographical pieces but it's more like a collection of really well told, long urban myths. The final tale is a really good little ghost story.
Graham Greene - The Human Factor
Spies n' shit.
Hemingway - The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Short Stories
Decent short stories.
Hemingway - Men Without Women
Favourite Hemingway shorts.
All Quiet on the Western Front
Best book ever.
G.K. Chesterton - The Man Who Was Thursday
Complicated philosophical thriller.
Alexandre Dumas - The Three Musketeers
Funny. Brilliant characters.
Graham Greene - The Power and the Glory
Greene's best book.
John le Carré - The Spy Who Came in from the Cold
Yet more spies.
James Baldwin - Go Tell it on the Mountain
Very powerful book.
Arthur Conan Doyle - The Lost World
Lots of dinosaurs.
Magnus Mills - The Restraint of Beasts
Funny Scottish fencing.
You can have my copy. I'll bring it to ATP.
All the Pretty Horses
No Country For Old Men
I haven't read either though. I have read The Road, and that was fantastic. I've heard good things about All the Pretty Horses, and I'm assuming No Country For Old Men is as good/better than the film. Yeah.
