I'm laughing because I remind myself of Woody Allen's father who fell asleep while reading the kidnappers' ransom note.


I have just bought his " Lovecraft Country" racism and shoggoths in 50s USA


When I was nerding around Forbidden Planet in Brizzle the other week I saw that one. They’re making a tv show I believe.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

I just finished Neil Taylor's "Estonia - a Modern History" which was great.
I've just started Viv Albertine's 'To Throw Away Unopened."
Birthday and Christmas has meant a big pile of books to wade through which is about as happy as I can get.

I read that recent-ish Harry Nilsson biog., which seemed more like a recitation of anecdotes than a proper book.

Still,it prompted me to find some Harry on Youtube that I probably otherwise might have not known about, so that's nice.

The Good Terrorist is Doris Lessing's 1985 satire of bourgeois incompetent revolutionaries in a London squat.
