I've really enjoyed reading Novel About My Wife, by NZ writer Emily Perkins. It had me gripped in the way Ian McEwan manages to, you can't help wondering why everything is not quite as it seems.
Bob has a reputation for going out in disguise, dressed as an old lady or a down and out to try and lead a normal life. But maybe he no longer needs to worry about the recognition. Bob was picked up by the cops while wandering around a not-so-smart New Jersey suburb recently. He may have been looking for Bruce Sprinsteen's boyhood home as he seems to have a penchant for rock history and has also been spotted outside Neil Young's childhood house and went undercover on a Beatles tour in Liverpool.
