Virge's favourite reads
Mrs. Virginia Chattaway "virge21"
Hangover Square: A Story of Darkest Earl's Court (Penguin Modern Classics)
"A must for anyone who's ever overdone it on the vino"
An American Dream (1960s Classics)
"A nasty, gripping thriller"
The Gormenghast Trilogy
"A vast, fantastical epic, good when you're ill in bed or on a winter's day. Tails off towards the end however."
Not Fade Away ("Rebel Inc." Classics)
"Funny, winsome, evocative tale of a drugged up young man who steals a valuable Cadillac and is subsequently pursued across America"
Captain Corelli's Mandolin
"Got a lot of stick after the film but the book is excellent, although terribly sad."
Les Liaisons Culinaires (Panther)
"Short, sweet comedy about two Greek neighbours who share the same mistress and try to outdo each other in the kitchen in order to win her heart."
Clarissa, or The History of a Young Lady (Classics)
"One of the longest novels in existence, but surprisingly readable. Took me three months."
Music & Silence
"Wonderful characters, especially the adulterous Queen and troubled King."
A Walk In The Woods
"Bryson's funniest travelogue - makes me laugh out loud every time I go back to it."
The Deposition of Father McGreevy
"Compassionate story of the collaspe of an Irish wartime village, narrated by it's priest."
Cold Comfort Farm (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Humourous classic send up of rural stereotypes"
"Perversely satisfying. Two mis-fit children return as a glamourous young couple to the suburban town where their lives were made so unbearable and take their revenge."
Unnatural Fire (A Countess Ashby de la Zouche mystery)
"The first Countess Ashby-de-la-Zouche mystery - Restoration comedy/detective story - they're all brilliant!"
"A sharp, irreverant writer specialising in farce. Some of his characters are unbelievably horrible!"
"Funny/Sad chronicle of a journey to nineteenth century Australia told by the diverse protagonists."
I Capture The Castle
"Not just a kid's novel!"
Tipping The Velvet (Virago V)
"Enthusiastic bodice ripper - great stuff!"
The Beautiful and Damned (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Pacy, fraught tale of a ragtime couple brought low by their inability to assume responsibility for their lives"
The Testament of Yves Gundron
"A really unusual premise - an American social studies student journeys to a remote corner of North Western Europe where she encounters a pre-industrialised society."
Suzy, "Led Zeppelin" and Me
"With it's surreal overtones, one of the better 'nostalgia novels', drawing on the author's memories of being a teenager in 1970's Glasgow, and getting to see his beloved Led Zeppelin in concert"
Civilwarland In Bad Decline
"Sinister, tragi-comic collection of short stories by US writer, narrated by the underdogs of a twisted, commericalized and lawless near future. Stays with you."
A Clockwork Orange (Essential Penguin)
"Almost dreaded reading this book, but felt I ought to. Gratified to discover a powerful, thought provoking work of art."
The Grapes of Wrath
"Everyone should read this powerful, bleak, humane book about an Oklahoma family travelling to California during the depression to try and find work"
Devoted Ladies (VMC)
"Razor sharp, exuberant 30's comedy about the nature of obsessive feminine friendship"
