    Alain Prost - The Official McLaren biography.

    A fitting tribute to (along with Fangio, Clark, Stewart and Lauda) one of the greatest F1 drivers of all time.

    Just about to start The Hardy Boys in The Clue Of The Screeching Owl. Basically, Frank fancies the pants off Nancy Drew and the sexual tension hots up from there.

    I'm just finished Chapter 6. Joe has been kidnapped and his parents have received a ransom demand that they want a million dollars otherwise they will put his head into a blender. Really action packed.

    Phew, that was a close scrape for Frank and joe but, in the end, they managed to catch a gang of international drug smugglers and get them sent to prison. They've gone off to do their homework for college now.

    I'm just about to start "For Marx" by Louis Althusser. Another one with no pictures as far as I can see.

    I'll do that, Ms S. I don't suppose you've read A Theory Of Literary Production by Pierre Macheray ? If not, you really should do. I can lend you my copy if you like.

    I just finished reading The Autobiography of Billie Jean King. I first read it about 30 years ago but I thought I would re-read it before the film The Battle of The Sexes about some of he life is released later this year.

    I'm afraid that I haven't read the book you mentioned! :hat:

    It's a very kind of you to offer to lend me your book, but I'll have to pass, since I have plenty of reading material right now! :wink@

    The Profiteers by Leif GW Persson.
    I love realistically written crime novels, and Persson is terrific at that, having worked in crime for 50 years.
