While over at Ma'n'Pa's yesterday I raided my bookshelves and grabbed And The Ass Saw the Angel by Nick Cave. I read this when it first came out in the late '80s and thought I'd read it again in preparation for the Conversation with Nick that Clare and I are going to in early April. I remember it being a very bleak book with a heavy emphasis on biblical allegory. Definitely not your conventional novel!
Today a customer brought in Ken Follett's World Without End. It's the sequel to Pillars of the Earth which I read years ago and loved. This appears to be set 200 years down the track after the building of the cathedral. Naturally I've snaffled this to read before it goes on the shelf. :)
