About meBorn in 1955, I live with my son and a demanding canine in the halcyon seaside village of Hemsby.

About my libraryI have a fairly eclectic collection but, have a particular interest in British humour from the second World War onwards. This does not preclude a weakness for Bill Hicks and some earlier English comedians such as frank Randle.
British Crime stories are another weakness, particularly the works of Reginald Hill, a genius of the first order. I always feel more learned at the end of one of his books and he is one of the few writers, regularly to extract audible guffaws.
