Please look out for new reviews on...

Allan Hall's Monster - the gripping and not-one-bit-believable-but-still-bizarrely-true story of Austria's Josef Fritzl, who kidnapped his own daughter when she was 18, kept her under his home in a secret basement, and had 7 children with her.

Anita Shreve's latest,
Testimony - my first Shreve, unlikely to be my last, is a brilliant account of what happens to a school, a community, and the little people who fill it when a couple of drunken teenagers host an orgy, and its protagonist is only 14.
