must be holidays…december, 2016

Summer reading:

  • The Optician of Lampedusa – Emma Jane Kirby
  • Black Mischief – Evelyn Waugh (deliciously funny and spot on in its critique of colonialism, progress and the modernisation of African nations)
  • Sword of Honour trilogy (Officers and Gentlemen, Men at Arms, Unconditional Surrender)- Evelyn Waugh… Note to self-write a post on the brilliance of EW soon!
  • The Pelican Brief – John Grisham (dated but still a fast paced read)
  • Do Humankind’s Best Days Lay Ahead – Pinker, Ridley, De Botton, Gladwell (Munk Debates, Toronto, Canada)

Summer viewing:

  • Stranger Things, series 1
  • The Get Down, series 1
  • Mad Men, series 1-7
  • Red Dwarf, series 1 (I’m pretty sure I’ve seen every episode at least 3 or 4 times, all out of order over the past 15 years or so but my 13yo old daughter and I watched the 6 eps of series 1 pretty much back to back, together…good times)
  • Brooklyn Nine-Nine series 1-3
  • Hip Hop Evolution
  • The Martian (with my daughter – we do watch a lot of sci-fi together)
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel (not sci-fi but with my daughter)
  • Allied
