I got this a while ago, after a friend told me it was one of her favourite books. I later learnt that she said this about more or less every book she read! I've got to say, I'm squeamish about awkward scenes, and selfishness or meanness kills a book for me, so... hmm. I'll try! But not before I finish my DPhil - campus novels make me too nervous....

>>> the poetry of Larkin (like the style, hate the substance)

How sad for you. Where do you suppose your hate comes from?

Or do you just favor drumbeat over truth?

Simon - actually, I think you'd really enjoy this - go for it when you've finished your doctorate. I can quite understnad why it would be abusman's holiday at the moment.

Infosherpa - my comment is somewhat flippant. Don't be so serious. A constructive dislike is perfectly healthy though.
