Now part way through the real Bill Bryson's own revisit of this Small Island. Called "The road to little Dribbling". Just as good and funny as expected and a lot more mature than Ben Aitken. Although I think Bryson has become a candidate for the "Grumpy old men" tv series.

Neat the end of "The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto" by Mitch Albom. Another work of genius!

I just finished A Street Cat Named Bob and have begun A Week In December. Very different but both set in London.

'A,week in December" sounds familiar but then so does "A street cat named Bob" for obvious reasons - desire/Bob.
