The bedside table...
...is groaning under the weight of books I want or need to read in November.
Two little boys by Duncan Sarkies
The blurb goes thus: When Nige runs over a Norwegian backpacker while attempting to save petrol, his life really turns to shit. he chucks the body in a nearby road works and runs to his best mate of fifteen yers, Deano. Trouble is, Deano's not really the guy you should turn to in a crisis. This off-kilter tale of male camaraderie is a bizarre debarcle from start to thrilling finish.
The Nursing Home Murder by Ngaio Marsh
A Career in Crime: Inside information from leading Women Writers.
On the pile to read:
Ngaio Marsh: Her life in Crime by Joanne Drayton
High Country Lark by Neville Peat
Edge: A cut of unreal by Martha Morseth
Poor Man's Gold: The diary of Reuben Radcliffe, Northland, 1899-1900 by Kath Beattie
The Midnight Choir by Gene Kerrigan
And somehow, I'm sure there will be more...
