I’ve just finished a great book, “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” by Paul Torday. What’s the relevance to the chemical industry. Nothing much really, only it has
• Middle East interest
• The unbridgeable gulf between techie experts and inept management
• Corporate and political scheming
Other good books I’ve read recently with flimsy chemical connections:
• “Two Caravans” by Marina Lewycka (it’s got Central Europe, agriculture, passing references to ammonia)
• “Aberystwyth Mon Amour” by Malcolm Pryce (Wales, vice, Patagonia, guano).
Suggestions please for other great chemical novels…
