Learning to Drive: And Other Life Stories by Katha Pollitt
4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable, 18 Feb 2009
I really like Katha Pollitt's columns for the Nation and this book of short memoir stories was really enjoyable and quite different to her political commentary.
Psychogeography (Pocket Essentials) by Merlin Coverley

4.0 out of 5 stars A good starting point, 20 Nov 2008
I had heard about psychogeography but couldn't quite work out what people were talking about so this book provided a really good introduction. It looked at the literary tradition and the flaneur and the situationists, looking mostly at Paris and London (and very briefly New York) and it gave me a long list of novels, nonfiction books and films to look into.
House of Clay by Naomi Nowak
House of Clay by Naomi Nowak
Short, but very beautiful graphic novel about a girl searching for what to do with her life while working as a seamstress in a sea-side town to save money to study. The artwork is very colourful, and sometimes a bit confusing. The story is quite short but I enjoyed the look and feel of it.
