It's wonderful what turns up at church bazaars - I've come across many good book finds myself over the years, including this remarkable volume. But it would take a lot to top this find of a tatty volume picked up at a church bazaar in Savannah, Georgia, having somehow made its way thousands of miles from the vault of a village church in Nottinghamshire. It's in a safe place now, and no doubt the contents will soon be published. Meanwhile, I like the description of Byron as 'a homosexual who was also reputed to have bedded 300 women'- that's not bad going for 'a homosexual', is it? Lynda La Hughes used to say on Gimme Gimme Gimme, 'There's no such thing as gays - they're just not trying'. So, full marks to Bryon for really trying.
