I’m reading…

…An Evening of Long Goodbyes by Paul Murray. Rolando lent me the book on New Year’s Eve. It’s pleasant to read and it’s been funny in parts but it is slow moving. The protagonist is a bit of a fop who lazes about his family estate and while the narrative does a great job of capturing Charles’ air, it also sets a pretty languid pace. As a result, I’ve found it easy to put down. At least in the early chapters. Perhaps it will pick up speed soon.
