I picked up Little by Edward Carey at the airport when my plane was very delayed last week and I was starting to panic about not having enough to read. It's absolutely fantastic! But there's so few reviews on Amazon that it seems to be getting missed, so I thought I'd give it a bit of a plug. I'm currently about halfway through, please tell me it carries on like this?!
It's a fictionalised biography of Madame Tussaud, complete with illustrations (a lovely touch) and some fantastic prose.
