Hugh Grant Just Sold Me a Book

OK, I’ll admit it. I really like Hugh Grant. So when I read this morning in the Hollywood Reporter  (don’t ask why) that Grant has just joined the cast of the the film version of Cloud Atlas, I had a little re-think. Yes, I loved David Mitchell’s The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet.  But I was afraid of Cloud Atlas. It seemed too literary, too difficult, and somehow I find the word “dystopian” kind of a turn-off. Now, though, I just have to see what lured Hugh Grant back to work.

I spend most of my time writing and reading. Most recent publications: the reissue of "To Marry an English Lord,"one of the inspirations for "Downton Abbey," and the historical novel "Leaving Van Gogh." I am too cranky to belong to a book group but I love the book-blogging community.

    No no no, Cloud Atlas is wonderful!! It was my first Mitchell, so I don’t know what the rest of his stuff is like, but I LOVED Cloud Atlas. And that was after being terrified of it! My book group made me read it (ok, they didn’t make me, but they did select it!), and I’m so glad they did. I hope you like it!
