Claims about meritorious books which I did not finish

Richard Roberts and David Kynaston, The Lion Wakes: A Modern History of HSBC.  This is an important book for the historian, but it is not written for the eye of the economist.

Kazuo Ishiguro, The Buried Giant: A Novel.  It has a beautiful air of mystery and profundity, but by p.120 I still didn’t care.  Some of you will like this a lot, but I put it down to pick up some other book which I will not finish.

Then it’s back to Houllebecq and The Mahabharata.
