F1 Book Club – Round 18 – Mexico

This week I read ‘Like Water for Chocolate’ by Laura Esquivel.

It’s a fairly easy-going read. There are only 12 chapters.

F1 Book Club – Round 16 – Russia

A little bit later than usual, OK a whole two weeks later than usual, but I’ve finally got round to doing the F1 Book Club for Russia.

I ran out of time, and haven’t done the video until now, because I was very croaky and looked like death warmed up!

I was in a production of ‘Three Sisters’ many years ago, playing Irina the youngest sister, and fell in love with his writing. Continue reading
