That's wonderful news, even if it feels slightly odd and sad.

I wanted to say Word Monkey is an excellent earlier but missed the posting window. So I've said now. Anyone who has not read it should. Funny and inciteful.

Thank you for keeping us up to date.

Hello to all the old posters.

Really glad to see the return of this blog on a beautifully designed website.

Word Monkey is excellent. Always preferred CF's non-fiction to his fiction. Word Monkey completes a brilliant trilogy of memoirs.
If visitors are looking for similar books try 'No One Round Here Reads Tolstoy' by Mark Hodkinson which is almost as good as CF.

Wayne, with apologies I think you mean 'insightful'

Please keep the blog going !

Oooh! I'm so excited!
I'm about half way through Word Monkey. It's brilliant, and funny, and insightful, but I also keep having to pause for a wee cry, so it's even slower going than my usual reading pace. It's worth it though.
