Reasons to be cheerful

Truth has a new editor – Cameron Slater. Watch that space. It won’t be boring.

Lemony Snicket returns.

Home Paddock reminds us that on this day in 1985, Keri Hulme’s The Bone People won the Booker Prize.

A novelist friend emails that the New York agent he met in Frankfurt likes the new novel and will shop it around.

So here are the Captain and Tennille with Smokey Robinson’s imperishable “Shop Around”. Never mind the costumes – Toni Tennille made a few albums of jazz standards that are well worth hunting out. She’s a fine singer and the arrangements and players are amazing.
