These never before published writings comprise Iris Murdoch's passionate wartime correspondence with two early intimates: the poet Frank Thompson, brother of the historian E.P. Thompson, who was killed in 1944, and David Hicks, with whom she had a dramatic affair, engagement, and breakup. It also includes the journal that Murdoch kept as a touring actress during August of 1939. The selection sheds new light on a brilliant young mind ("sharp and polished as a sword" as Frances Wilson describes it), while painting a vivid picture of life during the Second World War.

    I'd start looking in April and book as soon as you find a good deal. What's a good deal? Well, you'll get a feel for it as you start to research the hotel scene there. In general for a resort destination like Cancun I would expect 2 to 3 months in advance would have the best deals. But if it's a slow season then you could have the best rates right at the last minute. Waiting could be risky though.

    Hope you don't mind, Jessica, but I've just printed out your blogpost. I've just published (print and e) my first novel, and realise I haven't made the most of the Фextras', so for book 2, out at end of year, I will definitely be including some of the suggested list.

      I love downloading library books to my Nook via my laptop. However when we travel, it would be a lot easier to just carry my IPad. Is there a way to do download to my IPad and then to my Nook?
