The Egyptologist - Arthur Phillips Picked this up at the library for no reason in particular and so far it's really entertaining. Of course, Simon Prebble is my favorite narrator (he was a perfect Captain Illiam Quillian Kewley in English Passengers, incidentally).Update: well, the book is brilliant -- hilarious, dark and really ingenious. Recommended, coincidentally, to anyone who liked English Passengers. It has a similar sly tragi-comic, multi-voiced, cheerful perversity going on. God, I loved this book![Now I'm going to have to read the print version to check out all the charts and diagrams I'm sure I must've missed.]
