I had a copy of The Doll out from the library. It really wasn't rocking my world. I read about three or four stories and got bored with it.

I notice that there's a TV adaptation of The Scapegoat coming up. I don't know the exact date but here's a short trailer.

Should be interesting as it's one of her lesser-known books.

I just picked up The Winding Stair today. About Francis Bacon, and may be NF. Anyone familiar with it? I will post a cover once I've got it scanned.

Yes, that looks very 1970s! Good story.
