Fairly typical Roddy Doyle 'feel' to this, but it hasn't really captured my imagination. It doesn't move quickly enough through the plot to maintain my interest - it's been on the go for a few weeks now and I just want to finish it and get on with the next book, but it doesn't keep calling me back to be read.
This was shown to me by my pottery instructor on a pottery holiday in France. It's a rich source of ideas with basic construction and decorating information that is very useful. I go to it when I'm looking for a new idea. Bought a used copy for an absolute steal,
