Books Brought

Further on my spending spree in London today. I also picked up 'A Clockwork Orange' by Anthony Burgess and 'Bring The Jubilee' by Ward Moore. Never read A Clockwork Orange before and have never even heard of Bring The Jubilee - but I found them both in a Waterstones promotion alongside 1984, A Brave New World, and various other distopian titles and thought they'd be worth checking out.

(From the back of Bring The Jubilee)
"Hodge Backmaker lives in twentieth century New York, a city of cobblestones, gas lamps and ten-storey skyscrapers. In his world, the Confederate South won its independence in the Civil War and North America is divided, with slavery and serfdom still facts of life in the Confederacy and New York a provincial backwater. Bring The Jubilee stands alongside Pavane as science fiction's finest explorations of alternate history."
