    I’ve read it several times in different locations. I first read it in gardens of the Kempinski hotel in the diplomatic district of Beijing then re-read it sitting on a white leather sofa in Soho.

    When the bound proof came in I took it to Dubrovnik where I sat on a bench at the top of a rocky cliff overlooking the sea. The setting kept making me think of the scene in Rebecca when Joan Fontaine unwittingly saves Lawrence Olivier from suicide. That seemed strangely appropriate for Spying On Strange Men.

    I first began ‘Spying On Strange Men’ on a recent flight to New York. I read almost half as I couldn’t put it down….it is an immensely absorbing and pacy read. I then continued to read bits late at night in my Lower East Side hotel room. The book was finally finished in my Pimlico home back in London but I shall undoubtedly re-read it somewhere else in a while, maybe Berlin.

    I will imagine you in Berlin looking like the love child of Louise Brooks and Anna Mae Wong, reading Spying on Strange Men under the linden trees. Or in a cafe drinking goldwasser.

    I devoured the much awaited, ‘Spying On Strange Men’, in a matter of hours. I could not put it down even when this meant locking myself in the bathroom.
    This is the most hysterically funny novel I’ve read in years and yet it has a delicate, oriental ambience. Carole Morin is a fucking genius : Fact.
    Deal with it!

      Yes you are right M-Tang. You have great taste in books and dynasties.

    I started reading Spying on Strange Men while waiting for a plane to take me from Kilwa Masoko in southern Tanzania to Dar es Salaam, and finished it on the journey. The book and the flight were great fun! Peter

    I’ve been reading Spying On Strange Men on the tube and always get weird looks from people because of the cover and probably also because I am sitting there chuckling at the twisted humour. A really great read, not only entertaining but with depth too.

    I love DeadGlam readers. But I’d like to see a Strange Man reading my book on the tube too.

    1st read on my MacBook Air. Then copied the audio version to a flash drive and listened to it while driving my car. Different things stand out between the two versions. For some reason it took the audio version to remind me of merkins.

    The audio book doubles up as a bore blocker if you listen with headphones.
