… yet inspiration is hard to find.
So, I’m gonna go all old skool and tell you what books are currently beside me as I tap this out in bed on a Saturday morning.
There’s a biography of Thomas Hardy by Claire Tomalin called ‘Thomas Hardy [duh] The time torn man’ which is unusual as it’s taken a pretty standard slant in the title (stuck between the ages etc.) but then doesn’t actually mention that much.
There’s also ‘A Suitable Boy’ by Vikram Seth which is just getting to it’s exciting part (200 pages to go) which has, bizarrely, stopped me from reading it to help me get to sleep ;)
And there’s… ‘My Booky Wook’ by Russell ‘shagger of the year’ Brand courtesy of my Uncle and Aunty which is actually quite a good read if you’re into utter, startling, honesty.
One of these days I’ll actually finish them!
