Various Things

With a new official biography of V.S. Naipaul coming out, there's been quite a lot of features about the venerable writer. He always gets referred to as our best prose writer, yet, apart from reading "A House for Mr. Biswas" many years ago, I've never read him. Probably not surprisingly, Biswas, wasn't the kind of book that really floats my boat, but I might try one of his other novels one of these days, to assuage my ignorance!

Tomorrow sees the first night of "The Other Room" with Tom Jenks, Alan Halsey and Geraldine Monk. I'm intrigued to find how it will differ from readings with more traditional writers.
