Ripper, Art and Dunces
Just discovered that one of our trustee's wives (not sure that this is English) is a writer who wrote a book about Jack the Ripper - a diary from someone called James Maybrick who may or may not have been the Ripper. Obtained this from Amazon and it's a ripping yarn anyway. Have just heard about Vivienne Westwood sneering at some new book - a fiction about the current art world - soon due for publication - maybe that means it's good, so will purchase just in case, and report back. In between, I keep returning to my current favourite: A Conspiracy of Dunces. I love that book. All human life is there. Or quite a lot of it, anyway.
