This month’s book, Skios by Michael Frayn, was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2013 and has already been made into a Radio 4 play. It is a wonderful farce set on the Greek island of Skios and worthy of a Richard Curtis film-script. ‘A mix-up with suitcases on a Greek island plunges a pompous elderly lecturer (en route to a cultural symposium) and a raffish young character heading for an amorous assignation into a helter-skelter comedy of errors. The result is a bravura feat of nimbly plotted mishaps and misunderstandings.' Peter Kemp, The Sunday Times, Books of the Year. A great holiday read which will have you laughing out loud!
