"My favourite book this year was The Night Train by Martin Amis - I've only read The Rachael Papers (loved it) and Yellow Dog (hated it) so wasn't sure what to expect - but really enjoyed his main character and the detective-story-with-a-twist approach."
A Kind of Intimacy
Eachday until December 24th an author featured at TVFH over the last few years tells us of their favourite read of 2009 in our Author Advent. You'll have to provide your own chocolates and there's no little door to open, but you could try placing your hand over your eyes and then removing it again. Authors include the likes of Julian Barnes, Iain Banks, Paul Torday, Patrick Gale and Marina Lewycka.And for those of you who like lists, we'll list them all on December 29th.
