Books in brief:

  • Any Human Heart by William Boyd. The entire 20th century is seen through the eyes of Logan Mountstuart, a writer, spy, and art dealer whose ordinary life has extraordinary insight into not just the human heart, but recent human history.
  • Practical Demonkeeping by Christopher Moore. Moore is a complete and utter nutcase – and I mean that as a huge compliment. This is the debut novel of the author of Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal. Sadly immortal Travis is trying to rid himself of the demon Catch, who tends to eat anyone Travis gets close to. Mayhem ensues, but despite the ridiculousness of the premise, these are characters to care about.
“If a man isn’t willing to take some risk for his opinions, either his opinions are no good or he’s no good.”
