What are you reading?

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

My choice of reading matter usually follows a certain pattern: fiction with a strong storyline and well-drawn characters, grounded in a real-world context that I know little about. This context might be the Forbidden City in China as the last emperor's reign disintegrated (Empress Orchid, by Anchee Min), crime and power in Tudor London (The Shardlake Series, by C.J.Sansom), or the mechanics of the perfume industry in 18th-century Grasse in France (Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, by Patrick Süskind). Just so long as I am entertained whilst also learning something new about the world.
