@JonnyGeller Tim Allen is also former drug dealer; caught with 650g of cocaine he ratted out 21 colleagues. Not a terribly nice individual.
About this card: nobody thinksThis surprises people but I've never actually lost an argument. People say it's because I'm delusional but people get all sorts of fanciful ideas in their heads. (I've also never lost a game of monopoly because ghosts knock the board off the table whenever I'm losing). Whatever. It doesn't matter. The point is that today's card is here.
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.
@JonnyGeller ... hey now, don't do that - don't just casually mention in passing a new novel about George Smiley. That's huge, man, sheesh.
