Richard Austin? And David Murray, who is Everton Weekes' son (just learned this yesterday)?
Yeah, I just read that this morning. I haven't got to Austin yet. Lawrence Rowe, Alvin Kallicharan and Herbert Chang so far.

Don't read John Grishams the Reckoning. Must have been a contractual obligation. I know he isn't TJohn Mortimer but generally makes for escapist entertainment.

I stopped reading him 20 years ago.

Ive read Kafka on the Shore, Murakami, twice now. Still have no idea what it's about. Bloody good read though

To the Islands - Randolph Stow

Text Classics have a great strike rate and the yellow covers are only $10

this too obscure Aussie genius wrote this Pilbara kind of heart of darkness when he was 23.

im gonna work the Stow vein for a bit

I just got 'The Dark Remains' which was an unfinished prequel to William Mcilvanney's Laidlaw trilogy. I'm pretty excited to get into it. Mcilvanney is considered the father of 'Tartan Noir' and has also been referred to as the Scottish Camus. The unfinished book has been completed by Ian Rankin. Anyway I highly reccomend the Laidlaw trilogy-I reckon it would appeal to many PREers.

Have gone back and got stuck into all of Hemmingways stuff. Unparalleled genius, A farewell to arms gets better with every read.
