An interview with Alex Marsh, writer of the blog Private Secret Diary and author of the book Sex and Bowls and Rock and Roll, which I like a lot.
Tim Worstall on why self-sufficiency in food is an idiotic idea. It’s not just about wanting bananas, pineapples and rice when you live in New Zealand or – god forbid – England, it’s about preventing famine.
Chad Taylor on why bookshops in France seem to be OK, perhaps because they sell books. Chad signs off here – I hope he’ll be back because I have enjoyed his blogging very much. It is zeitgeisty.
I’m signing off for a bit too. Back next week, with the long-promised Bill Manhire/Dr Feelgood connection. Promise.
