Cross words

My review of the new Neil Cross novel appears above (I'll add the link when the 7 Days website is a bit more stable). Despite some of the griping about Cross's writing in the Times -- at least he can spell the word "night" -- and in the Guardian, not getting the author's technique for elevating a sense of domestic menace, Human Nature is a very good book (hat tip to Chris -- pictured -- for delivering me a copy).
