Over on The Dabbler, I'm writing about The Towers of Trebizond and Rose Macaulay. I should add that the account of the heroine's attempt to learn Turkish and its unexpected consequences is one of the funniest things I have ever read.
Nige, who, like Mr Kenneth Horne, prefers to remain anonymous, is also a founder blogger of The Dabbler and has been a co-blogger on the Bryan Appleyard Thought Experiments blog. He is the sole blogger on this one, and (for now) a wholly owned subsidiary of NigeCorp. His principal aim is to share various of life's pleasures.
