Yes, that's the one, OMCO.
I really liked The God of Small Things
(although also uncomfortable reading at times) particularly the way she played with words. There is not so much of that in The Ministry of Utmost Happiness
On my bedside table, started, but paused is The Chalk Man, more Nancy Mitford and Birdsong, which I thought I'd probably better read as going to a Sebastian Faulks signing and reading with a friend, in a couple of weeks.
My mother meanwhile, is currently reading some of my Jasper Fforde Thursday Next books. I think she is struggling with reading because of poor (morphine induced) memory at the moment. She reads the same bits over and over and probably doesn’t remember the beginning by the time she gets to the end
but if she gets pleasure in the process, that's the important thing.
