i saw Jenks today. he was looking magnificent.
Ages ago - I remember dry gagging at a bitThe Woman in White is also pretty good. It's actually one of my Mum's favourite books I think. Maybe it's sad to have such an overlap with her taste but really there is no point denying it - her latest tip is something called Cows by Matthew Stokoe, I dunno much about it to be honest, has anyone read it?
Once you open it and start reading, you can no longer see the cover!that looks interesting but the cover is putting me off. do you know any related books?
lost a bit of momentum with this. it feels like a document of the gilded age of labour. you've never had it so good. i'll probably finish it but i've picked up another cowper powys in the meantime. i think it's maiden castle.ive been reading popular '60s paperback One Dimensional Man and what is striking about it so far is that Marcuse is very upset that conditions have got so good for workers that they have lost all desire to cause trouble. which reminds me of Hobsbawn saying that the big problem the left has is that it has achieved all its aims.
