I know an interesting variation on this. Glyn Parry was to visit my
daughter's school and I told her it was polite to have read one of his
books beforehand. I bought her MOSH and she settled down with it.
20 mins later, she handed it to me. 'Read it,' she said.
I read the first 10 pp or so.
'What does it all mean?' she asked.
Well, I didn't know and I still don't.
Tegan went to hear Glyn Parry do his talk and came home beaming. 'He's
*much* better than his books!' she said...
I mean, an editor? Talking in clichés? How dare she! Alister McKenzie
