Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

An excellent read, as usual.

Between the bears and Dostoyevsky, we may have it covered. The two sides of anal. Reason and hormones. There are messages in both.

Watched Shawshank Redemption, would you believe, for the first time today. A very good movie imo. It also appears to continue to top the DVD rental charts, nearly 15 years after it was made. 3 quid in W H Smith. A bargain.

I have trouble believing you've missed it beforehand.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Another point for David Lodge


Lodge invented a literary parlour game called 'Humiliation' in Changing Places, which remains popular at dinner parties. Players name classics of literature that they have not read, the winner being the one who exhibits the most woeful literary lacuna. In Changing Places, Lodge's obnoxious American academic, Howard Ringbaum, admits that he has never read Hamlet - and thus wins the game (but loses his job). Lodge himself owns up to War and Peace.

He seems to be in accird with poemless about Tolstoy.

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner - that I moved to Nice.
