What are you reading at the moment?
Wide Sargasso Sea - Jean Rhys

What have you just finished reading?
My profile on (yet to be published)

What will you read next?
Someone else’s profile on, however, this may change to something infinitely more interesting almost immediately, probably Roma by Stephen Salyor in advance of my anticipated Latin lessons

Which author do you have a crush on?
Too old for crushes… But JK scrubbed up well! But would have to be Jean Rhys, beautiful writer, beautiful woman, tragic life… a potent mix (although perhaps not for her).

Dracula – no whips or chains come close

Which book would you give someone you’re trying to impress?
One Who Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, of course
