Help! I have suddenly realised that this month the first Monday and the second Wednesday fall in the same week. Consequently, I have thirty-six hours between having to lead one book group in a discussion of Jhumpa Lahiri’s novel, The Namesake, and taking part in a second group’s discussion on Franny Moyle’s Constance: the Tragic and Scandalous Life of Mrs Oscar Wilde. Given everything else that’s in the diary for this week I am going to have to spend every spare minute reading (nothing unusual there) but also pinch some extra spare minutes from the blogging world. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible. Be good while I’m away.
