D'oh! Yes, you are probably quite right...

Great choices! Although 'Hoffman' is not my favourite Angela Carter, by quite a long way. I wanted to like it a lot more than I did...

Got any you recommend? I got this years ago because someone recommended it and then never got around to it until now...
I'd probably go for the short stories first. "The Bloody Chamber" is her best known, and a good place to start.

Someone on another thread (I don't remember which or who) recommended to me a David Gaffney book. Since he is originally from Cleater Moor, not far from me, I have ordered it. I will ask around at work tomorrow as there are several who come from Workington and the surrounding villages. Someone will know him I am sure.

Read this while suffering the malaise over Christmas and new year.

He is a fucking great writer, one of our best, gloves always off... his alphabetical memoir of provincial life in the '50s and '60s is dense and nuanced.

I thoroughly agree. Do you know the Meades Shrine?

I'm still reading Nia's book. Last night I realised what it reminded me of so much, the lyrics of Mark Smith. I think it's the juxtaposition of words that you wouldn't otherwise expect to be together that does it.

I didn't know of the Meades Shrine, thanks for that.
