If it successfully melds poetry and prose in the way suggested, it should be good. Trevor March 24, 2010 at 10:28 am Hi Isabel, thanks for the links! And as far as going to hear McEwan, I’m afraid I won’t. Five years ago I would have been thrilled, but since then my admiration of his work has flagged and I have next to no interest in the man himself. Lee, I hope it lives up to the excitement you’re showing. I have to admit, I’m getting excited to read it too. Let me know how you like it! Lee Monks March 25, 2010 at 5:44 am I will! Interesting what you say about McEwan there: he was one of my favourites a while back but my interest in him has diminished, not sure why. Yeah, five years ago I would’ve pre-ordered Solar. Nowadays, it’s a library-lend with curiosity rather than excitement the motivating factor. I remember reading Amsterdam in a quick blur of mesmerised obliviousness. Odd.
