The request to do book reviews on the local radio station came at just the right time.
With two pre-schoolers, one of whom had multiple disabilities, I wasn’t in a position to take on full time work but the offer gave me the excuse to read and call it work.
One of the books in the first pile I was given to review was Grievous Bodily by Craig Harrison.*
It made me laugh out loud and has done each of the many times I’ve re-read it.
I came across it again last night, started reading and with a very few minutes was laughing.
It’s one of very few books I’ve read that have that affect and with every laugh I’m grateful for it.
*( It was published in 1991 and probably only available second-hand now).
