So we finally got around to talking about Books.

"Why books?" I hear you cry....

Well, Ant has had it in his head that he wanted to chat about books ever since Leo Tolstoy kept coming up in the diary sections. I had been working my way through War & Peace on the tour bus and it took him back to a conversation we had had about the first few pages of Peter Pan.

So for 64 we have tried to uncover literary references in my work, as well as books that I have enjoyed and that have made an impression. We have even included a couple of recommendations (see the links below).

We tried to keep it high-brow, you will have to judge for yourself whether we managed it or not.

By the time the diary section comes around we are back on solid ground, with drugs & dysentery in the big apple.
