I haven't really got time for much 'pleasure' reading, but this actually combines a little research with some pleasure. It's Joseph O'Connor's The Ghost Light - the fact meets fiction story of Irish actress, Maire O'Neill (Molly Allgood) and her relationship with the Irish playwright, JM Synge. I shall post a review once I've read it, which I'm sure will not be long at all. I took delivery of it yesterday evening and am already on the third chapter. I'm loving Molly's voice, yet also the second person narrative and the time shifts. There's a Times review here.
