Já li - A Balada de Adam Henry


Foi um projecto profissional (do qual vos falarei certamente mais adiante) que colocou este livro no meu caminho.

My Thoughts

‘Breakfast on Pluto’ by Patrick McCabe

I completely lost patience with this (thankfully short) novel.

Review: Νομος περι τεκνων απο τον Ian McEwan.

Η Φιόνα Μέι είναι διακεκριμένη νομικός που εκδικάζει στο Ανώτατο Δικαστήριο υποθέσεις οι οποίες εμπίπτουν στο οικογενειακό δίκαιο. Είναι φημισμένη για την οξυδέρκειά της, την ακρίβεια και την ευαισθησία της.
