Huzzah. Barry Forshaw has picked Anatomy of Murder as one of his best crime books for Christmas in the Independent. Very nice. One of the other books recommended, in general fiction, was Neel Mukherjee’s A Life Apart. This pleases me greatly, as Neel and I have been friends since university. He’s an wonderful writer and has been quite rightly lauded all over the place for the book. We couldn’t be more different in what we write, but seeing us both on the same page is very satisfying.
He’s also an incredible cook.
