One of my Books To Read List is Francis Spufford’s Golden Hill.  Of interest to New Yorkers, and American readers in general.

If anyone wants to get there before me, Waterstone’s have it as one of their five October Books of the Month.

Golden Hill

One of  the others, Gorky Park by Martin Cruz Smith is a great read.  And a good film.

Gorky Park

I’m reading two really depressing books at the moment and have to confess I picked up a copy of Girl On A Train for when I have finished them.

(Hush! I have a secret shop  – not primarily a bookshop –  where I often get paperbacks.)
