The qatsi awards

2011 was not a good year personally, but in looking through my journal there have been some good things nevertheless.

Best of the year:

No food or drink awards this year: we've eaten well but I don't seem to have recorded anything exceptional.

Other highlights: in Fiction, Twilight Robbery by Frances Hardinge and The Secret Pilgrim by John Le Carré; in non-fiction, Gitta Sereny's book on Albert Speer and Superforce by Paul Davies; in music, the LSO/Gergiev and the Royal Stockholm Phil / Alice Sara Ott / Sakari Oramo Proms; and in exhibitions, the Uffizi and the Galileo museum in Florence.

The outlook for 2012 doesn't seem especially cheerful. Let's hope it turns out better than current expectations.
