Book and Film Recommendations 8 October

If anyone is looking for book and film ideas I can recommend the following:

A Short History of tractors in Ukranian by Marina Lewycka

A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers by Xiaolu Guo

—– both were shortlisted for the Orange Prize.

If anyone wants my copies, please let me know as I have finished with them.

I can also recommend the movie The Way Back. It features Colin Farrell and the wonderful Ed Harris. It is about a group of prisoners who escape from a Siberian Gulag camp during World War II.
