I’m off to get the train to be a guest on Robert Elms’ show on BBC Radio London. 12.40-13.00 if anyone’s about.
Elms was struggling with a tooth abysses, under those circumstances he was very cool, sharp, and switched on. I liked him. Listen again here if you can be arsed. Comes in after about 40 minutes.
Short review, which I particularly like for the last line, from the Times here.
Another ‘I didn’t like it much so I’ll just drop in a couple of random and out of context quotes’ round-up piece from the Sunday Times here. Or in other words the blogosphere at least allows authors to say to reviewers: Take more than five minutes, read it again, and this time read it properly, you tool. For instance, I listen to Radio 4 well before the end. At the actual end I don’t own a Saab, and I very specifically don’t own a Volvo either; instead I very specifically own a different vehicle.
