Summer reading, part two

Just back from Cornwall, where we did a lot of walking and rather less reading than anticipated, but I did enjoy Anthony Cartwright’s powerful, affecting debut, The Afterglow, set in the Black Country and finally got round to David Mitchell’s excellent ‘Number 9 Dream’. I’m now well into Stanley Middleton’s absorbing new novel, Her Three Wise Men where a production of ‘Twelth Night’ in a fictional North Midlands town draws out all sorts of rivalries and secret histories.

I’m not sure if my favourite band, REM, have sanctioned this new version of ‘It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (and I feel fine) by the current US president, but it’s a lot of fun. Catch the vid before some bugger bans it and watch out for the Winston Churchill cameo at the end.
