Me, Breaking the Routine, in 2018

If you’re feeling frustrated by how much writing you’re getting done, if you want to write fast – or at least, aim to write faster than you do now – then I’m afraid you’re going to have to smash your existing writing routine apart. To be blunt, you need to take it outside and bring…

The Other Side of Silence by Philip Kerr

There’s always been a touch of Philip Marlowe to Philip Kerr’s, Bernie Gunther. After all, are there really any meaner streets for some men to walk down than Nazi Berlin?
