  1. I just bought/borrowed/received...

    The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
  2. A to Z Game

    Xanadu so I can walk round with Coleridge's poem in my head.
  3. The setting is south central Los Angeles an area inhabited by loads of gangs. I.Q. are the initials of a yoing high-achieving student distraught by the loss of a much-loved older and influential brother. Having no other family and unable to support himself he pals ip with an 'habitual offender' . The author is a devotee of Sherlocck Holmes and we see this in Isaiah's (I.Q.) deductive abilities: his partner is streetwise. A lot of the gangsta-style lingo of the inhabitants passed me by but the character of I.Q. saved it for me.
  4. Patrick Melrose

    I agree with you Binker that it was a good first episode. I have read many of Edward St Aubyn's Melrose novels and am looking forward to the next episodes.
