Christmas Day, I wore GIT for the first time. Even my wife likes it. (She hates most perfume). Today I'll probably go with Eau de Rochas as I check out the menswear sales and watch the cricket.
Back on track for 65, I think. Merry Christmas to you all, and I hope Santa brings you the book you want.
63. Woes of the True Policeman, by Roberto Bolano (2012) Woes of the True Policeman by Roberto BolaƱo My rating: 3 of 5 stars Reading a great author's last, unfinished work can risk significant disappointment if the work is incoherent or sub-standard. Roberto Bolano's Woes of the True Policeman does not suffer from this fate; it hangs together well enough as whole, while tantalising us with the impression of a far bigger and more complex work that we will never see.The...
