Other stuff —

Read lately and recommend:
Dying for Strangers: Memoirs of a Special Ops Operator in Iraq by Brennan Morton
Trieste and the Meaning of Nowhere by Jan Morris
A Dark Stranger by Julien Gracq (enjoyed it for atmosphere and description, not so much the characters)
The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro (not a fun read, but it has stayed with me and probably affected me more than most books do)
The Madonna of the Sleeping Cars by Maurice Dekobra

  1. Thank you so much for sharing my Patreon news. I’ve been dreaming of making historical mushroom sauce tonight, only all the best recipes use much cream. I shall make a paste instead and use it as a dip when people drop round. If it works, it’ll be this fortnight’s recipe. If it doesn’t… it won’t. I’m amazingly logical tonight…
