Duke Ellington, A lull at dawn and others.
Finished that issue of Granta. It included a nice story by Haruki Murakami called The seventh man. V. poetic.
Dickens is definitely a great writer. I first read GE at school, something that happened so long ago that all I can really remember of the experience is that I enjoyed it. Re-reading the novel now, I am up to the stage of things where Pip is about to leave for London, thanks to a mysterious benefactor.
It’s engrossing stuff.
