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.

  • 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

  • : 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. (****)

  • : The Killer Inside Me

    The Killer Inside Me
    Odd movie. Doesn't really work. (***)

  • : Gone Girl

    Gone Girl
    Pretty good, I thought, but not amazing. I had already read the book so perhaps the lack of surprise hindered things a bit. (***)

  • : The Lunchbox

    The Lunchbox
    An absolute delight. Beautifully acted. Loved this. (****)

  • : Atomised

    So much better than the book. (****)

  • : 20,000 Days on Earth

    20,000 Days on Earth
    Watched this for a second time. Just as good. (****)

  • : Le Mepris

    Le Mepris
    Brigitte Bardot, Jack Palance, Michel Piccoli and Fritz Lang star in a beautifully shot but terribly pretentious movie. Palance is awful throughout. (**)

  • : Labor Day

    Labor Day
    Was this a box office flop? I think it might have been. Shame, it was very good. (****)
