Holiday reading

I'm off to lie around in the sun for 10 days, and I'm looking forward to catching up on some reading. In terms of poetry, that will be the new Bernard O'Donoghue collection, The Seasons of Cullen Church, Adam Zagajewski's Selected Poems, and Jack Gilbert's Collected Poems.

I'll also be reading Jonathan Bate's biography of Ted Hughes, and Raymond Chandler's The Little Sister – I've been working my way through Chandler's entire catalogue, and it never gets dull.

Dear Matt

Enjoy your well-earned break! The best book that I've read recently (apart from yours) was 'Moving' by Jenny Eclair. I bought it out of curiosity and then fell in love with it, never hitherto having realised that she was such a talented novelist.

Best wishes from Simon R. Gladdish
