I don't really like bananas, but I eat them for energy. (And I always have to check the spelling of this fruit!)
Am still enjoying Mother's Milk (I don't have to skip pages, hurrah, and I'm not forcing myself to finish it), though there is little sense of the characters physically, and occasionally they appear to be no more than a collection of words and cleverness, (though I dislike writers who get bogged down in physical descriptions, I can't be bothered wading through them). The unrealistic 'adult' voices of six year old Robert and toddler Thomas are funny and touching.
I see he is on the Booker shortlist, I haven't read the others, but I'd be very happy if Edward won, quite a few Booker winners are just not that readable, let's be honest.
