  1. When I was a teenager, about 30 years ago., I read a series of novels about a Tang dynasty judge in China written by an author with a Dutch name. Since my father, the only other reader of these I have come across, died over 15 years ago I don't know who I can ask. Can any one help me?
  2. Birdsong - Sebastian Faulks The Shadow of the Wind -Carlos Ruiz Zafon Poisonwood Bible - Barbara Kinsgolver Brick Lane - Monica Ali The Diving-Bell and the butterly - Jean-Dominique Bauby The definition of favourite being telling everyone, including strangers in bookshops."You must read this!"
