Jane from Dorset

Good to see you back, I had been wondering if all was well with your world.


All fine, thank you Jane, just a busy time, and it's surprising how easy it is to get out of the habit of regular posting.

Like the sound of Christina Hardyment's latest book. Its been awile since I have seen anything new by her,

I love Stella Martin Currey's book One Woman's Year, I have an original copy published in 1953. Indeed long before we had the internet, I wrote to our local library and they found out for me that she had written several other works, mainly plays. This is one of those books I re-read (as you intend to read) in the January of each year.

Reading (viewing?) a fantastic and thoughtful book, Camera Atomica, edited by John O'Brian and published by "Black Dog" (which you may remember went bust early in 2018 with very significant debts for a small independent). The book encompasses nuclear photography (not just weapons)from Hiroshima & Nagasaki through the Cold War era to the Daiichi accident and also N Korea and Iran. Stunning, disturbing photographs with thoughtful and provoking essays.


You must be delighted to have a Toppings now in Edinburgh. I haven't been into it yet but go to the St Andrews one fairly regularly and never emerge empty handed. How could you?

Dark Puss

Easily :-)
