Thank ye for the birthday wishes
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is an excellent book with a rather too short but"your there on the river fishing with the author " sequence . If you've ever made THAT cast to a showing fish and hooked up you'll like that pageand 1/2 sequence I will add this proviso .You have to appreciate VERY dry humour.Great sendup of pompous bureaucratic twits and political coniving that sadly rings too true .If you like politics you'll appreciate the book .If you hate politics you'll love it ;-) . Some just won't get it and will put the book down rather smartly ! Put this way ,if you liked Catch 22 you'll enjoy it. Book is VERY multi layered .Much like Speypages ,read AND digest the email content in the book .
Don't sweat the bad casts for they sometimes bring you fish
