    Aha – thank you for reminding me that The Sea is Not Made of Water is the other book my best friend and I are planning to read together. A good selection here, a few of which I’ve read or have.

    • Paul

      He is such a good author, though I wasn’t keen on the book he did on Wordsworth and Coleridge.

      • Liz Dexter

        No, I don’t bother with books about them anyway!
