Well 25th February sees the 100th anniversary of the birth of Anthony Burgess one of the most influential writers of the last hundred years . He wrote from Sci fi , lit and historic fiction . From tales in Shakespeare’s day to the future and violent gangs Burgess had an impressive output I have tried to add his books over the years but when I saw the anniversary was near last year i decide to up my buying now having 26 novels two of those include the Malay trilogy and the enderby books adding to a total and 31 novels of the 35 he wrote also have two non fiction books his 99 novels and a book about language also a short story collection. With a month to go I plan from next month to read one a month for the next few years.

    I expected more editions of Clockwork Orange in this pile. I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the books

    I noticed it was 100 years since his birth and thought of you! He’s a varied writer so it shouldn’t get boring. I might join you next month as I have The Wanting Seed which I’ve long wanted to read.
