Lots of sites lifting this story and not linking to it: it’s the tale of how Dickens tried to put his wife in a lunatic asylum. Read the original here.

I’m very excited to be the chair of judges for the Baillie Gifford Prize () this year, when we’ll be giving a lucky author £50k. Which is quite something.

My vote goes to TIG if it will undertake to ban wheelie suitcases on public transport.

Westminster loves talking about Westminster, but it means it is not thinking about Brexit now a little more than a month away.

Here’s a lovely new from : Margaret Drabble looks at reissued novels by Anthony Burgess; and Charlie Higson () tells us about comedy double acts, past and present.

My wife always gets her large red wine given to me, and my lime and soda given to her. So I’m happy to sign any petition (and stand in solidarity over the refreshing nature of a lager top).

It is lovely image. You are quite right: the book was a 60s thing, and I saw a 70s version, but I see now this is more modern. It's great.
