About this card: certain conditionsI got invited to attend a childbirth once. Then I said a couple of things that got me swiftly uninvited. Of course - they were a bit weird but it occurs to me that many would go along just to be nice. I'm looking at you, Twenty-First Century Husbands.

@JonnyGeller Tim Allen is also former drug dealer; caught with 650g of cocaine he ratted out 21 colleagues. Not a terribly nice individual.
The Theory of the Leisure Class, Thorstein Veblen. Maps for Lost Lovers by Nadeem Aslam. Tigerman by Nick Harkaway. It's a fun list.
I'm in the south of Spain making a list of the next hundred books I want to read. The most immediate: The Silk Roads, by Peter Francopan.
