Out with the old

Hello… and goodbye to The Crow Trap by Ann Cleeves. This week is its final appearance as “Book of the Moment”.

As from next week it will be replaced on that illustrious list by The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter – so only a marginal reduction in violence, terror, suspense, conflict between environmentalists and landowners, and distressing family back stories.

Be warned, close multimodal textual analysis of class politics, gender roles and economic structures may be required. Plus detailed knowledge of flopsy bunnies.

All the best
