Australian native Daniel O'Malley has written a book that slithered right up onto my favorites list--and that list isn't terribly long.
My new favorite movies are "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" and "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel." They are both British (I admit to a weakness for Brit Flicks) and are both quirky and tart/sweet.
October's movie is The best exotic marigold hotel (rated PG13). It will be shown in the Carnegie McIntyre Room
