Just released at midnight: Troubled Blood by Robert Galbraith, also known as J.K. Rowling. Now in my possession: the Kindle edition.
“You’re a Cornishman, born and bred,” said Dave Polworth irritably. “‘Strike’ isn’t even your proper name. By rights, you’re a Nancarrow. You’re not going to sit here and say you’d call yourself English?”
Before I read it, I plan to finish my current book, Margaret Atwood's The Robber Bride, which I'm re-reading for maybe the third time. Amazingly the two authors have one great feature in common, which is the ability to collect penetrating little details about the individuals they portray, and to develop delightful and quirky personalities for a wide variety of characters. I'm anxious to see the implications of "a Nancarrow," which Google defines as "a Cornish surname meaning the valley of the deer."
