the wave at hanging rock.

a woman believes her husband was lost at sea until a phonecall puts her in doubt, so she tries to find out what happened. the first half is about his life growing up, surfing, friendship etc and the time leading up to his disappearance. the second half the whole book shifts pace

Commodore - The Inside Story by David John Pleasance

Filled with anecdotes and stories on how things went wrong at Commodore, from the man who was on the inside at Commodore UK - plus more great memories from ex-Commodore employees and fans.

Definitely worth a read for Commodore fans.

Currently reading Richard Ellman's classic James Joyce biography.
