javier marias. extraordinary novelist. from pneumonia due to covid.
tomorrow in the battle think on me is just a soaring novel. his spy trilogy - your face tomorrow - truly haunts. basically all his novels (all in fab english) transport and enrich.
he was also the king of redonda. check it out!
i'm genuinely mourning this particular monarch, after his lifetime of service to culture and imagination. he did a good job.

Eddie Butler, the voice of BBC rugby.

For years I couldn't stand his pretentious bombast. It won't be the same without him. 65 is no age.
You may quote me on that.

what a great writer hilary mantel was. readers in this parish may enjoy my favourite novel of hers, fludd - which is a bit like a literary demon nic. i also enjoyed the assassination of margaret thatcher. wonderful writer, gone, from a stroke, far too soon.

years ago, my sister in law sent me a copy of "A Place of Greater Safety" after I told her I'd studied the french revolution, and it was amazing.

I haven't read the Wolf Hall books to my shame because they don't have pictures. For someone with an honours degree in English Lit, I've read shamefully few 'word' books in the last decade or two.

What remained of the economy, it would seem.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!
