  11. My two favourite books were "Lowborn" by Kerry Hudson, a non-fiction account of growing up poor in the 1980s and 90s; and a re-reading of A High Wind in Jamaica by Robert Hughes. You have to ignore a couple of lines of casual racism early on, but I think it is one of the most perfect young adult books ever written.

  13. Meg, so sorry to hear of Mr Meg's out-of-the-blue heart attack and I hope the rest of the year leaves you in peace. Will Christmas arrangements still stand, do you have lots to do? Thinking of you, momac, and hope your reading is solace for you when Mr m is not cooperating with his care.
