Chris Cleave has a new book out titled Gold, just in time for the upcoming Olympic Games. Collections of stories by Mikhail Bulgakov, Diaboliad & Other Stories and Note on the Cuff & Other Stories are available in English translation for the first time ever. If you have never read Cleave, nail a copy of Little Bees.
Meanwhile, I’m poring over Pat Conroy’s Beach Music, a tome of 768 pages. Story is gripping and fast-going. Perfect for travel.
