  • Five questions about New Zealand – Quick Quiz
    New Zealand has its own distinct character which places it out on its own in more than a geographical sense. How much do you know about these fascinating islands?

Just finished Banksie's latest. Some lovely twists, including the epilogue. The fellow has an amazing imagination, as well as the ability to tell a story.

Don't let your Christmas visitor see you reading it. He might confiscate it because the tense bits have rather a lot of rude words...

When we were in the UK recently, we sent heaps of books back to our Thailand address. This is amongst them but we have such a lot of new books that we're spoiled for choice. We must get around to that one soon, it sounds great!

racy bits

Not really racy - just an accurate portrayal of dialogue in severe 'brown trousers' mode...
