Overheard

Last night I actually heard Julie laugh, twice, while reading Ian McEwan's Solar. Odd, considering that I don't remember a single amusing moment in either Atonement (which I loved) or Saturday (which I admired, despite some major reservations), although Amsterdam was definitely a comic novel (and which, perhaps not coincidentally, was a big disappointment).
