LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS
3 January 2008
You really need to take a couple of days off to read the LRB!
This latest issue to reach me has a wonderfully entertaining long piece, 5 pages, by Alan Bennett under the heading What I didn't Do in 2007. Written in diary form it is worth purchasing this issue of the LRB for this story alone.
What surprises me though is the almost total dominance of non-fiction book reviews and commentary, hardly a poetry or fiction title to be seen.
