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.

The third book I've read by this author, and it's at least as good as the others. Karnezis seems to get compared to Graham Greene a lot for some reason, but to me he's closer to Garcia Marquez. This is a terrific story about how the arrival of a baby ...more

A short novel from the 1930s partly about the breakdown of a marriage, but mostly about the conflict between traditional Japan and the modern, westernised version. There's quite a lot about bunraku (a type of puppetry). You'll have to be quite intere ...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!
