When a band are as truly original as this lot, it becomes difficult to describe them well without resorting to inaccurate comparisons, but here goes… Glassglue are a four-piece featuring Marcel Stoetzler on vocals, who retains his native German accent and has a charismatically unpretty voice which can, nevertheless, hit some difficult notes.

A good one this. It's often quite sordid and unpleasant but it's in the service of the author's genuinely appalled vision of life and the sorry creatures that struggle through it. It's very well written in a style that hasn't dated a bit and Gresham ...more

Is this a good book or a bad book? I really have no idea. I find myself continuing to read books by this author despite the fact that I'm not totally convinced about any of them other than 'Woman Of The Dunes'. His novels always sound highly intrigui ...more

I liked this - it has a nice bit of humour, it's surprisingly free from racism for a Victorian book about Africa, making at least some attempt to portray native Africans in a positive light, and there are a number of memorably vivid scenes along the ...more

M.R. Dowsing Hi Nathan. No I haven't read everything, not by a long shot - there are loads of 'em! I'd strongly recommend The First Men In The Moon and The Invisible Man though if you haven't read them yet. His SF short stories are really good too and I also like The War In The Air. The Food Of The Gods was disappointing though, although it started well...

M.R. Dowsing I haven't read Queer but I've read the others - all good choices I reckon! 1984's so depressing though... Have you read Coming Up For Air? That's probably my favourite Orwell and shows he could be funny too.

M.R. Dowsing That's a toughie! At the moment, though, I'd say maybe "All The King's Men" by Robert Penn Warren, "Under The Volcano" by Malcolm Lowry, "Three Days Before The Shooting" by Ralph Ellison, "Silence" by Shusaku Endo and "Sometime A Great Notion" by Ken Kesey.
You've got to tell me yours now!
