1. One book that changed your life: While young I came across Oedipus the King…I mean, I thought my family was strange up until that point.

2. One book you have read more than once: There is not just one book, I read all of Waugh, O’Brian, Flashman, Dance to the Music of Time, Beerbohm, Wodehouse in a cycle which works out to about once per year, maybe two for each author…

3. One book you would want on a desert island: Symthson’s Guide to Boat Making

4. One book that made you cry: Just the thought of reading The Beats makes me cry…

5. One book that made you laugh: A. G. MacDonnell’s Autobiography of a Cad makes me laugh, as does Augustus Carp, Esq. by Himself…Two of the funniest books you’ve never heard of…

6. One book you wish had been written: Waugh died before he could finish his autobiography…He only finished the first volume, covering his early years, I would have liked to have seen the rest…And dammit, the Civil War Flashman would have been nice.

7. One book you wish had never been written: Only one? That’s hard…But we could surly have done without Kahlil Gibran…I mean, that guy’s got a lot to answer for….

8. One book you are currently reading: Max by Lord David Cecil

9. One book you have been meaning to read: I have been meaning to read John Boot’s Waste of Time, but haven’t got around to it yet…
