    I've always been heavily into biographies and autobiographies. At the moment, reading a biography on Bruce Lee, one of my heros.

    Yes i've got it in my hand at the moment 'so to speak ',it's book of short stories ,some a bit gloomy . I like it because i can relate to it ,with my being Irish.I think it's an easy book to read with traces of humanity and humour . It's about a young boys observations of life growing up in Dublin at a time of political and social change. Some of it is autobiographical, i know it took Joyce about 10 years to get it published owing to its content 'sexual explictness' . hope you like it .

    In that case try Harlan Cobhan ... the Myron Bollitar series will keep you going a while ... his slightly psychotic friend Wyn made me laugh so hard I cried in places

    Thanks for the the recommendation, but I'm giving Peter Robinson a try until local author, Graham Hurley, releases his seventh DI Joe Faraday book.
