In praise of... The Night Bookmobile by Audrey Niffenegger

Famed and appreciated for the heartbreaking novel 'The Time Traveller's Wife' (and less for the not as satisfying film version made from it), I nevertheless think that 'The Night Bookmobile' by Audrey Niffenegger is possibly my favourite of her works.

Originally published in the Guardian Review, it tells a magical and moving tale about reading and life and living and death.

Everything you could want really.

Thanks to coverage on the World Service, I've now discovered this gem has finally been published (thanks for nothing the rest of you!).

So you can now buy the shiny visual treasure that is The Night Bookmobile.

Truly a thing of great beauty: and worth getting hold of from somewhere like Gosh!

On the other hand - saw the first episode of Sherlock last night, very well done. But why only three episodes?

Oh, Joe, we have to wait a whole year for the next three episodes! I'll go mad! I've seen the series up here in Canada, but watched again on PBS. It makes so much more sense without commercial breaks....
