Next books

Hi... just to confirm that the next book will be "And when did you last see your father?" by Blake Morrison. There's also a film, which I'm going to watch and compare!

After that, my sister has recommended Alice Munro and I thought that might be worth trying. She writes mostly short stories, so it'd be a genre shift for us. The Queen, via Alan Bennett, described reading a Munro, "which she greatly enjoyed. Even better, it turned out there were many more where that came from and which Ms Munro readily supplied... And all, though she did not say this, in paperback and so handbag sized." Let's try "Open Secrets", shall we? Looked like the short stories are somewhat linked, so that may help those of us who prefer novels to short stories.
