What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.
― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
More stuff about me (as if anyone cares):
Writing a bio about oneself is just plain weird:
“You need to have a website,” suggested my publisher.
“Really? …It just seems a bit too self-obsessed for my liking”, I replied.
Then, when I acquiesced, my web designer said, “You definitely need to compose a biography…”
“Oh, God no,” I protested. “Everyone will think I’m a raving narcissist!”
And as if that wasn’t bad enough, he added, “Throw in some pics of your wife, open up your personal life…readers would like to know something about you.”
So, here’s some idiosyncratic stuff about me:
Art, travel, good manners, independent women, Sunday newspapers and dirty laughs; funk, punk, Bob Marley, Pulp, Foo Fighters, Marmite, winks, pouts, Masterchef Australia and Earl Grey tea.
Strawberries (I’m not alone with this one), drivers who don’t indicate, men who devote their weekends to cleaning the family car (what’s that all about?), English winters, 1970s-style armpit hair on women, spitters, farters, insufficiently-chilled white wine, homophobes, misogynists, xenophobes and ignorant jerks in general.
Right, enough about me: my books are way more interesting.
