Another query: has anyone read or heard of The Stones of Summer by Dow Mossman, or seen the film Stone Reader by Mark Moskowitz?  I came across these just today when looking for a film with Stone in the title for a game on another board - a Mornington Crescent game of film titles.  

It was a fascinating story when I read about it on wikipedia.  He wrote this book in 1972 and Moskowitz read it some 30 years later and wondered why he had not come across any others by the author and couldn't find any references to him beyond the first review.  It turned out Dow Mossman had a mental breakdown afterwards and not written anything else, and had a career as a welder.  

There's all these interesting stories out there, aren't there?  I might be more interested in Moskowitz's book or film.

I've not heard of the book or the author. Thanks for letting us know about them Caro. Sounds interesting!
