Detective suffering from claustrophobia and panic attacks takes medical leave and goes to Scotland to rest and recover; on his way there he encounters a death that doesn't initially seem like a murder at all, and starts investigating it as a way to take his mind off his anxiety.

It's cool enough for me to know that the phenomenon of 'singing sands' is a real one that exists is the world. How this fact fits into the book is, for me who hasn't read it yet, just that it makes for a damn interesting title.

https://archive.org/details/artnouveau0000fahrlarge sized coffee table book on Art Nouveau by Gabriele Fahr-Becker which I got as 3 for a Euro yesterday and i think was way more expensive last time i saw it elsewhere. Th0ough still about 15Eur or something. Bit of a windfall then. Pretty nice, hadn't known taht archive.org had it on their site until I was looking it up for a better image of the cover. So can be browsed at least.
Also got a great thing on Art Deco which seem sto be a great deal lesser thna teh above but has turned me onto new artists already, thjough maybe should have been aware of them Demetre Chiparushttps://www.christies.com/img/LotImages/2006/PAR/2006_PAR_05446_0134_000().jpg for one. Though it only has 2 or 3 images by artist it still has some great stuff in for a book I payed like 33c for. Think it will prompt opening up several rabbit holes to get lost in.Had come across some Tamara de Lempicka https://i.etsystatic.com/20564088/r/il/1d0063/3244562736/il_1140xN.3244562736_ptu7.jpg before though not sure L knew the name

bought a few online over the last weekAngela Saini Patriarchs her latest book that came out last month. Do enjoy her writing and interviews. This is looking at the phenomena of patriarchy and what alternatives there have been historically, both different types of patriarchy and different types of matriarchy. Looking forward to reading it.
Augusto BoalLegislative theatre & Rainbow of DesireTHought I wa sgoing to get a few of his books from a friend but turns out it was only one book on him. & there were a few he has buried in te corner of a room because he's as untidy as i am it would appear. But these are 1) Legislative Theatre a book looking at the time he was in the government and applying his Theatre of the Oppressed methodology to the act of government and legislation& 2) Rainbow of Desire where he applies the methodology as therapy.I had this ordered from the library but I think it's been lost or just not returned. Found it relatively cheaply so grabbed it online.
was also thinking of buying Orlando Patterson's book Slavery and Social Death cos I can't get it though the library.Anybody read it?
Did also get a copy of George Perec's first 2 novels Things and A Man Asleep in one volume.
plus a continual stream of books from charity shops. If I can reinvent the passage of time I might get through a load of these.Do have a bit more time now that the bike mechanic course has ended.

Angela Saini Patriarchs arrived a couple of days ago. I haven't really looked at it. Did strike me that it must have been sentthe one day I was physically near the shop and thinking I mightdrop in and ask if I could grab it. Didn't wind up goingthere after all. Seemed to take forever to get processed though. So wasn't sure of status.
Bought the rest of teh Time Life World of Art books that were in a local charity shop. So have 7 of them yesterday got Michaelangelo , Delacroix, Vermeer and Rembrandt.
