Have started reading
Fair Play, and in fact nearly finished! Will give you all a few days, and then report back....

  1. I am halfway through. It is a gentle, rather elegiac read, with the emphasis on atmosphere and character rather than plot. In this regard I would compare Jansson with McCall Smith: both authors write pleasurable prose which is a delight to read, but you are emphatically not drawn along by Plot.
    On page 31 (Sort Of Books edition) there's an exchange about film which could easily be about books!


I've now moved to, and all my old posts are over there too - do come and say hello :)

I probably won't see your comment here, I'm afraid, but all my archive posts can also be found at
