I’ve always been enthralled by the mysteries of the human brain, and the book is full of quirky ailments, brilliant surgeries and likable characters.

I’m knee deep into A Conspiracy of Friends by Alexander McCall Smith. This is the newest edition to the Corduroy Mansion series. He has a tender and respectful way of bringing life to his characters here and in his other books, most notably, The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.

I’m looking forward to The Red House by Mark Haddon. He is the arthur of one of my favorite books of all time, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. He has also written numerous children’s books.
