No, you didn't fall asleep Rip-Van-Wrinkle style and miss 21 books. And I'm not backing out of my project, I promise! What happened is that I told my neighborhood book club about my Booker Prize reading project and they graciously offered to read one of my books with me. So I am skipping ahead to Roddy Doyle's Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha, winner of the 1993 Booker Prize. I'll get back to reading them in order after my book club meets on Monday.
