Books - Review

Espresso TalesMore stories of life in Edinburgh (and a little bit of Glasgow, with Lardy Jim or whatever his name was) mostly told from gap-year Pat's point of view, still sharing a flat with the vain bloke, who gets sacked and tries to start up a wine-business. One good thread was the genius 6 year old who is constantly harrassed by his mum to learn Italian and the saxophone (Grade 7!). Eventually he rebels along with his father who re-paints his room from pink to white.

Pretty good. Cappucino would be better than Espresso though - because of the light froth...?
