"Jazz, presumably"

But Doves prefer country...

Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week(!):




In other news: I was taken to secret, subterranean soho haunts on friday night, and yesterday I went to see a friend's exhibition which turned out to be in a beautiful rickety old Georgian barn full of mannequins and moth-eaten costume paraphernalia , Joseph Cornell style curio-boxes, dried pipe-fish and corsets. The exhibition was in a small candle-lit room, and next door we sat and dried damp selves and drank tea next to a stove with a wiggly chimney while the rain made sounds on the roof. Oh, and there was a dovecot outside, with doves! In the heart of suburban Enfield!
