  1. Just noticed that while Lee hated Moby Dick, one of the later contributors described it as fascinating. I loved Darkness At Noon. At this point I no longer remember if I have read Homage To Catalonia! I guess I did, having read a lot of Orwell while in prison. Spies doing spy shit - you should try Mick Herron. Really good. I have Kershaw's books about Hitler here but at this stage I doubt I will never get to read them.
