John knew that he had to keep the lawn in front of the library hydrated.

By all possible means.

A brisk walk (in orange alert weather!) to the library, and a half hour road trip through 1974 America thanks to Stephen Shore.

Great way to clear the head.

Then I was accosted by two kids on the street who were screaming “Dad! Daddy! Papa!”
They were actually mine. It still cost me 8 slices of Italian salami from the Granny Aisle…

To be totally honest, I didn’t hold high hopes for this paperback.
Picked it up from the shelf at lunchtime, not really knowing what to expect.

But WOW!

This is a page turner if I ever read one.

I just couldn’t put it down.

Rob really knows how to hold his readership in the palm of his hand, and take it on a journey of self discovery.

I drank in his every word.

I read somewhere that there is a sequel. I hope that’s it not just a rumour.
I have to have it. I can’t wait.

I want to read it NOW!

alvin and the shaggin chipmonks, are Happy Meals really laced with cocaine?, art, drop down to your knees with your hands over your head menu, funny, humour, I'd be tempted to admitting to being superstitious but I prefer not to say it aloud, ireland

Compulsive reading

And why shouldn’t they?
It is so much nicer to be publicly in love, than to murder each other very publicly on the streets of Baghdad, Bali, Beirut, Bogota, Boston, Inverness, Kabul, Kinshasa, Paris, Sao Paulo and anywhere else that sees people compelled to kill each other. For religion, for money, for drugs, for fun.
Because it is easy.

Ok, maybe not Inverness.
