About this card: sibling rivalryLike most people I had parents. They ran a complex experiment on me called 'raising a child without reading a book or consulting anybody who has done it before'. But they must have done something right because God says he prefers me to just about everybody else in the world. In fact I could become a prophet but I suffer from a phobia of beards. Today's card is about families.
@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.
