@finkowska I like that I don't need to see the film as the entire plot and joke have been skillfully wrapped up in under 2 minutes.

Two things I'd recommend: 1) a trip to Dover Castle 2) the Queer British Art exhibition at Tate Britain.

I'm going to Dover, castling. Excited for a night away without the childers...

Booker Longlist predictions - 9 months ago
I think everyone's said that this year is a bit of a mystery; I'm not able to disagree with that. I think there are some that are givens - Garth Greenwald and Sarah Perry - but even them, with the 'wrong' judges could fall short.I have done very badly over the last few years - I think par would be to get 5 - any more than that is a bonus. I still think the book to beat is Edna O'Brien.
