Great idea to pair these two authors up for the interview. And they both sound like great reads, added to my wishlists. I like books that give an insight into an everyday occupation that I take for granted. It's like we get the chance to be nosey and get answers to all the questions we'd never get to ask.

Anna Sam says she's trying to increase the prestige of checkout girls, while Tazeen Ahmad spent, according to you, six months "undercover"? Not "worked as a checkout girl for half a year", but "spent six months infiltrated in a supermarket"? Did she collect pay? Did she have to confront with a gun those employees who got too close to the truth? "You're not a checkout girl working long shifts for minimum wage, you're an undercover writer!!"

Yep, respect for an honest day's labour duly increased.

Quick Flicks

One You May Have Missed

  • Ian Holding: Unfeeling

    Ian Holding: Unfeeling
    Unforgettable novel told from the point of view of the son of a white Zimbabwean farmer whose land is reclaimed by an armed mob. I thought it was an oustanding debut and am surprised the author didn't go on to bigger and better things.

Big Mouth at the Movies

  • : Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road
    Confused. Terrible dialogue. And what little CGI they did use looked rubbish. A huge disappointment. (**)

  • : Jiro Dreams Of Sushi

    Jiro Dreams Of Sushi
    Documentary about the best sushi chef in the world. Made me really want some eel nigiri. (****)

  • : Me Without You

    Me Without You
    Second time I've seen this. It was the film that made me realise Michelle Williams was amazing. (****)

  • : Meteora

    Meteora
    Beautifully shot. Not enough plot. (***)

  • : Untouchable

    Untouchable
    One of the most successful French movies of all time. I can see why. (****)

  • : Involuntary

    Involuntary
    Swedish film that cleverly looks at group dynamics and how they influence the actions of the individual. Sort of cinema verite in style, the shots of often framed as if you are a voyeur looking on. (****)

  • : The Fall

    The Fall
    What a great movie. Amazed I had never heard of it before. Stunning cinematography. Loved it. (*****)

  • : Where the Truth Lies

    Where the Truth Lies
    Interesting thriller. Not a classic, by any means, but worth a look if it's on the telly. (***)

  • : Guardians of the Galaxy

    Guardians of the Galaxy
    Good fun, I thought. Not the best film in the world but a cut above the usual superhero stuff. (****)

  • : The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya

    The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya
    Unlike any animation I have seen. Quite stunning. (****)
