Mr Pick

What did you read as a child?

I used to read ‘Shoot’ football magazine as a child the first book I can remember reading independently and enjoying was the Hobbit.




Do you have any stand out reading memories?

I remember reading a book not long ago called, ‘The Elegance of the Hedgehog’ by Muriel Barbery. When I had finished I cried because it was such a sad ending.



What do you enjoy reading now?

I like a good novel but also enjoy books about Politics and Philosophy.



What are your 'desert island' books?

A book that I could read again is ‘The Secret History’ by Donna Tartt.  I'm also massive fans of 'In cold blood' by Trumen Coppote, 'The fight' by Norman Mailer, and 'Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind' by Yuval Noah Harari.   Anything by John Grisham is always worth rereading.
