Book Review :: Pigeon English by Stephen Kelman

Pigeon English by Stephen Kelman hits all the right buttons on the back cover copy and inside flaps. In theory, it sounds like a great coming-of-age novel dealing with race, culture, immigration, acceptance and adolescent violence. However, I had a… Continue Reading →

Book Review :: The Lady Elizabeth by Alison Weir

I finished The Lady Elizabeth a few weeks ago and haven’t been able to muster a review. I think it’s a little bit of ambivalence; I enjoyed the book, but it lagged a bit in places. I read Innocent Traitor… Continue Reading →

Book Review :: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon

British Museum

I didn’t run after him, stop him, and meet him… but he walked past me on his cell phone on Argyll Street (he was headed towards Oxford Street) in Central London. WOW. It was actually him… no mistaking that face… Continue Reading →
