Salut!

Hello ladies and gentlemen…and welcome.

I thought I’d start us off with some of the classics, which make up the beaten track so much so that roadworks are planned to re-lay the pavement.

I give you…. http://www.shakespeareandcompany.com/

Now don’t be snobby.

Been here before? Did you run screaming before you’d even had time to reach the poetry section at the back? Probably because an army of camera-clicking tourists (no specific nation in mind) were gawping, their fanny packs knocking books off tables, asking whether Shakespeare used to come her arrrrfen.

I understand your fear.

But the trick is to perform a matrix-style leap, running along the bookshelves, past Joyce and Dick Francis, and get to the stairs. Up here, in exhange for working a couple of hours a day, you can kip for free on one of the old sofas. Also, if you’re lucky, you might get to catch a book reading AND wine tasting. Tomorrow, for example, I’m hoping to pop over to taste some of Jean-Marc Espinasse’s Carignan from the South of France after Ann Mah’s reading from ‘Kitchen Chinese’.

Love,

Mustard
