Sci-fi & fantasy, and when I need to return to the real world for a while, I like to read autobiographies and non-fiction type stuff; Richard Dawkins 'The God Delusion' is next in line, as soon as I've finished Steven Eriksons' latest.

why is romance a separate category from chick-lit?

Tom Sharpe every time.


I have read every on of Tom Sharpe's books, Ancestral Vices I think is my favourite. I also like Ben Eltons books as well, they are easy reads, not to taxing on the grey matter.

a romance is girl meets boy and this is the central story whereas in chick lit girl meets boy doesn't necessarily feature at all.

I like 20th century American fiction - particularly the writings of F. Scott Fitzgerald, the Beat authors, Hemingway, Vonnegut and Philip Roth.

ABSOLUTELY with you there!!! I also love Truman Capote, Paul Auster, Jay McInnery and Armistead Maupin. I also very shamefully admit to adoring Bret Easton Ellis, even though I wouldn't tell that to my Mum!!

But 20th Century European fiction is fabulous too!! I love Gunter Grass, Kundera, Boris Vian and Italo Calvino!! The last century was FABULOUS for writers!!!

if there's any books on 'highbrow chick-clit' then that's enough to get me to read the first few pages at least.
