I liked Kellman. How late it was, how late. Grim but just so Scottish.

Kelman can be a bit too stylised for me. I prefer his short stories to his novels.

When I was a young teacher I got into trouble for reading his short stories to my students. Not that I cared.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Wonder whose short stories are permissible now. There will be teachers copping it in years to come when the wheel of condemnation has turned again.

Sounds like Erich Von Daniken.

Something a bit different - Phil Rickman

A whole series of the Merrily Watkins novels: female exorcist in the CofE with stroppy teenage daughter dealing with strange deaths and even stranger goings on, often working with the police. Set on the Welsh borders with a great sense of place and the weird history of the area. Sounds a bit naff but Rickman is a brilliant writer.... for starters possibly try The Chalice - set in Glastonbury and not a Watkins novel.

Also great historical novels on John Dee - Queen Elizabeth I's magician

Robert Goddard is great
Michele Giuttari great thrillers

And the best book i have ever read is The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

I always recommend this novel about football to anyone who will listen - then again, I did write it :-)

Thanks everybody, for all your suggestions.

Such a wide range of ideas, and as usual some humorous posts. You're a well read lot I'll give you that.

Now for the difficult part - making a selection or two. Perhaps the list will also provide inspiration for others of you.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.
