Crime novel, interesting as much for its plot, with PI ex-NYPD Perry Christo, as for being created cooperatively by 20 writers, a chapter each! A great project. Santlofer has the first chapter... enjoyable writers that were unfamiliar to me, and their works held by the City of Sydney library - Marcia Clark, Alafair Burke ...and of course the marvellous Mark Billingham..

A competently made science fiction show that has moved beyond its roots of what if we sent 100 teenagers to frolic among themselves in an unknown environment. Moral ambiguities abound in the choices that people have to make. Barbarism vs necessity honour vs betrayal with some intriguing turns to make the honourable way the way of betrayal. Actors have grown with the roles and have diversified from their original caricature. More about people under stress and making choices that they do not want but must.

A fascinating concept - a diary, about diary-writing, and about the experience of time. I cannot recall any mention of Salvador Dali's painting of a folder clock. It's proudly about ordinary life - a good track there with Proust and Anthony Powell, and even Ivy Compton-Burnett. Yet after 60 pages, tiresomely narcissistic! Like an unfunny Corrections Franzen. Her writing is compelling, however, so I felt unable to put it down and repulsed at the same time! Read a novel by Mark Billingham instead recommended!
