Just finished two books and am finishing up an article for Sun News.
Peter Mayle's slight but fun wine mystery kept me busy for a couple of hours this weekend--an interlude while Joe watched football--but a real find is Tracy Chevalier's Remarkable Creatures about female fossil hunters on the beaches of Lyme and the things they found and discovered about themselves in mid 19th c England. She continues to grow as a novelist. Wonderful work. Very different from girl with a pearl earring in subject matter -- shows off the breadth of her talent. This chick (Chevalier) is no one trick pony--She can WRITE! It is a pleasure to read her.
