HG Wells – Tono-Bungay  – I think this could easily be set now and still make sense. Worth  reading by Ad execs and the like too.

I think I love old HG. I read The History of Mr Polly recently and rattled through it. Loved it.


Roy Wilkinson – Do It For Your Mum – Just wonderful, and made me appreciate British Sea Power even more.
Joe Moran  – Armchair Nation – Only two chapters in, but as ever JM has me enthralled about a fascinating subject
Michael Harris –   The End of Absence – Feels contradictory to be reading this on my phone, but none the less and interesting subject. Feels like it should have been a long article, but enjoying it all the same. Also worth a read of this by Lauren Laverne.
