  1. I just thought i would chime in on these two that I have read since we were discussing books the other night and I couldn’t think of anything. I’m a fan of Ellis but haven’t read Lunar Park which I heard was fantastic. Also, I’m a big John Fowles fan. The Collector was a page turner but I really loved ‘The Magus’ – have you read it?
