Product description

Review

'A house in Britain that does not have a copy of this book is a house bereft: it will afford you great wisdom in the afternoon and many an enlightened smile after dark' Daily Telegraph 'Superb... eloquent... there is no disputing the enormous knowledge, the sheer love of books that is gathered here' Scotland on Sunday 'He is our nearest contemporary equivalent to Blake, our sweetest-natured screwed-up visionary. Buy the book!' Evening Standard

About the Author
