Quote of the day

‘The best time for planning a book is while you’re doing the dishes.’

Agatha Christie

I wouldn’t know about that, but this I concede; that Agatha, she never got above herself. This too; she must have had a large family.

    Well, I don’t know what activity you were doing when planning ‘Pray for the dying’ but please keep it up. I think the last two books have been amongst the best Skinners.

    I’ve seen your Christie, and I’ll raise you a Keats:

    ‘At once it struck me what quality went to form a man of achievement, especially in literature, and which Shakespeare possessed so enormously — I mean negative capability, that is, when a man is capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason.’
