Booze and Books Monthly Meetup

September's book is The Moon's A Balloon by David Niven. It's an autobiography... but fear not! It's in quite a light style, and is really a series of anecdotes. The library has no copies (what!?), hence the early posting. The theme for the month is light / comedic autobiography. Other books that spring to mind are James Herriot vet books, like It Shouldn't Happen To A Vet, and Richard Gordon's Doctor In The House series.

    I recently read 'Bossypants' which is Tina Fey's autobiography. It was an easy read and really funny.

    Admin note... I occasionally put links in the descriptions. Do these generally work for you (ie, do you get to the web page)?

    'Red Carpets and other Banana skins' by Rupert Everett. This is his first book - the second one is not as good.
