I just finished Dispatches from Pluto by Richard Grant. It is a true story related by an Englishman who moved to the Mississippi delta with his girlfriend (specifically to Pluto, MS). The book relates their experiences in the first year. It is very well written and is both amusing and enlightening.

Just skimming Kathleen Ferrier's correspondence.
From the RMS Mauretania in Jan 1948 she writes "We are sharing a table with James Mason's mother-in-law"
Oh, to be that famous!
Does it remind you of the quote about Lillian Gish's sister in The Three Amigos?
Here's some brain exercise. For anyone interested in religion and philosophy I'd recommend one I recently finished. 'God and the World of Signs: Trinity, Evolution and the The Metaphysical Semiotics of C.S. Peirce', by Andrew Robinson. The best book on ontology and the Christian Trinity that I've ever read.
RRP is £140 !!! So, also the most expensive book I've ever read.
But it turns out the author may have the odd cheaper copy on request ...
