Fancy a Good Read?

A good day yesterday seeing the sights in this seaside city. The Royal Pavillion, of course got a look in and I had a wander down here.  As a Southend girl, used to jaunts down the longest pier in the world, I found Brighton's version a bit stubby!

Anyway this is a cultural city so I thought I'd mention a favourite author of mine who hails from these parts.  Aha you thought that I was going to say Grahame Greene didn't you?  But no,  Patrick Hamilton gets my vote for his dark brooding style of writing about psychopaths, prostitutes and other miscreants.  Try the  Gorse Trilogy set in the city if you're stuck for a good read!
