Yes -- all at once. I'm not much of a multi-tasker, and it's giving me a bit of a headache - but they're all so good!
Something Happened, Joseph Heller
Just started it so not quite sure what it's about yet.
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Susanna Clarke
Alternative Regency England with magicians, faeries and quaint manners.
Finnikin of the Rock, Melina Marchetta
YA fantasy a long way from Alibrandi.
Beloved, Toni Morrison
Ex-slaves haunted by a baby's ghost. Can see why it's a classic.
Catch-22, Heller again
God I love this book! Reading it for just second time, at same time as Something Happened, in an attempt to analyse Heller's style, which I think forms mostly around his talent for the absurd and the incidental.
