Also, my wife is listening to one of the strike books. Absolute drivel (before you even touch on the weird, pointed centrism of rowling).

Divorce papers imminent.

Posted this a while ago but only just got around to reading it. Absolutely superb Quite Good The range of people he’s met and spent time with is honestly ridiculously impressive, and he’s got a real knack for using those anecdotes for helping you understand the bigger sociological causes of what makes China and its people.

Just finished this. Follows a high school debate champion and his parents and touches on toxic masculinity etc. Less than 300 pages so fairly quick read.

Weird, pointed centrism Pinilla

The Strike books are naff but an easy enough read. Rowling really should've just put the pen down at the end of the Deathly Hallows and retired quietly. Warnock

Finished this other one by Ben Lerner. Again it's short at only 180 pages but it's about an American poet / writer living in Madrid

Just started this. Book starts with Trump being notified of the Covid outbreak. He's actually surprisingly well informed on it but determined not to cause panic according to the author.

That actually looks good. Is it written by somebody inside the White House I take it?

I believe he wrote a book a few years ago where trump refused him access and he hammered him so this time around Trump gave him 17 hours of interviews for some reason.

Got it for a quid on the kindle, it’s highly rated on goodreads.

Woodward is a big dick journalist. He was central in bringing the watergate scandal to light. He's a pretty big deal.
