    J.G.Ballard, "Miracles of life" (autobiography). His observations of the english in the late 1940s/early 1950s are, as he himself hints, still valid today. Not that they are particularly flattering!

    The Golden Apples Of The Sun. I'm afraid it is not living up to my memory of my first (teenage) reading. Distance lends enchantment?

    As usual I have various things on the go but I'm finding "Grant Wins the War: Decision at Vicksburg" compelling. It's about one of the pivotal actions of the American civil war and Arnold manages to explain both the strategic and tactical actions of both sides in an understandable manner. It's neither too dry nor too purple and it doesn't harm that some of the protagonists seem to have stepped straight out of Terry Pratchett's world. :D
