One book bought – Lesley-Ann Jones’s biography of Freddie Mercury, after I heard her as the expert on this week’s Great Lives.  She and Matt Lucas made a great duo talking about one of my favourite singers.  I learnt a few things and it was much more nuanced than many interpretations I’ve seen of Freddie’s life.  I’ll keep you posted on the book.
