May's book suggestion
Since many of you have been impressively racing through We need to talk about Kevin, I'll give you May's suggestion now. It's If nobody speaks of remarkable things by Jon McGregor. It's been recommended to me by the friend that recommended Kevin, so I'm prepared to give it a whirl. It doesn't look like "comedy" but it certainly looks rather lighter than Kevin, and should at least provide a contrast. Those of you who prefer your books weightier or darker probably shouldn't prioritise this over any previous books you might have not yet got to.
