I basically venerate Philip Hoare. Have you read Leviathan?

I haven't yet, but I will.

I have read his biography of Noel Coward, which was also excellent.

Have you read We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves? I have almost finished it and have found it fascinating.

I have not but you are the third person to mention that book this week, Barbara, so I may have to check it out. Thank you.

There's no such thing as too many books, only not enough shelf space.

  • : 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

    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. (****)
