Recent reads

A couple of light, but enjoyable reads recently.


Shaun Tan's collection of quirky and very short pieces, accompanied by his surreal illustrations (always puts me in mind of the surrealist Yves Tanguy) - Tales From Outer Suburbia.


And Paul Torday's humorous Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (put me in mind of the TV show Yes, Minister).

I like the title, Tales From Outer Suburbia. I've been agonizing over a title for my own manuscript.

Happy trails.

Yep, it works well, Swubird. I find that titles sometimes make themselves known very quickly and other times are very elusive. I wish you happy hunting in the pursuit of yours.
