A really stunning book: "A Delicate Truth" by John Le Carre. In the 'global war on terror', British intelligence and special forces end up being the underlings of American private defence contractors, all thanks to the Neocon policies of New Labour. Le Carre's best book in years: no punches pulled, no holds barred, no prisoners taken. Read it in an afternoon/evening yesterday.

I'll refer Book Club readers to the Food group for a quick review of Wheat Belly Total Health.

I don't know if this is appropriate or not, but I'm trying to find some readers/reviews for my book The Atheist's Messiah - about how religions get started with a twist. Happy to send out a free copy to anyone interested - just send me a message.

I doubt if my library has it, but I'll check. Sounds interesting.

Finished. It doesn't really matter if there's a Kim Yong Un at the top, or an invisible friend, the pattern of the monoculture is the same - chilling. A real must-read.

Without You, there is no Us - Suki Kim, non-fiction 2014

American South Korean author teaches English for some semesters in North Korea. She describes her own culture shock, the narrow minded monoculture she now lives in, her pupils'  guilelessness and their extreme sensitivity to political/cultural correctness.

Haven't finished yet, but a very good read!

From one of my cousins, a retired schoolteacher:

Never Argue with a Woman

One morning, the husband returns the boat to their lakeside
cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap.
Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out.

She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up, and begins to read her book.
The peace and solitude are magnificent.

Along comes a Fish and Game Warden in his boat.
He pulls up alongside the woman and says, 'Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?'
'Reading a book,' she replies, (thinking, 'Isn't that obvious?')
'You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he informs her.

'I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I'm reading.'

'Yes, but I see you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.
I'll have to take you in and write you up.'

'If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault,' says the woman.

'But I haven't even touched you,' says the Game Warden.
'That's true, but you have all the equipment..For all I know you could start at any moment.'

'Have a nice day ma'am,' and he left.


Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.

My latest novel, POLLY AND THE ONE AND ONLY WORLD, is at last beginning to get some national attention--and that's no mean trick in today's very crowned book market.  With an atheist witch as its heroine and Christian fundamentalists as its villains, POLLY is the sort of book that's bound to appeal to A|N members and all the book-loving children in their families.

Sorry, I wasn't clear enough, Randall. It was a guidebook that I bought in the museum: a time travellers' guide. Other time travellers' guidebooks I know of are by Ian Mortimer - one to Elizabethan England and the other one to the Middle Ages. We only have to wait till someone builds a time machine - but we have at least something interesting (and funny) to read!
