    Oh, you’ve already added my Bukowski link…thanks. I’m about a third of the way through my second book for 1968, Brian Moore’s I Am Mary Dunne, which I’m enjoying. I may even be able to squeeze a third one in.

    Here’s my review of Maigret – I see there’s a Simenon on your pile, so I wonder if you will be reading it too!
