A surprise on my desk this morning (above).
A day at Persephone Books tomorrow.
Mrs Miniver. I could read the opening chapter over and over again and never tire of it. It's short and beautifully formed. It's really a prose poem about the pleasures of home and domesticity.
Ben Pentreath's blog. In the best possible taste, and often very funny, too.
The Infinite Monkey Cage. I heard it for the first time yesterday. I don't know if it's always as entertaining and thought-provoking, but this edition certainly made me laugh and think. Radio 4 at its best.
