You've possibly already seen my link via twitter, but Strange Men has notched another review in its starched pants. This one is by Joshua Reynolds. I think I yelped when Google sent me an email link to the review and I possibly didn't breathe until I'd read every single word. As I said last week on Simon Marshall Jones' blog, 'Reviews are scary.' They're also kind of awesome. Many thanks to Joshua for such a delightful review.
And talking of pinstripe suits...
I saw a strange little man wearing one yesterday. To be fair, he may only have been strange in my imagination. He was brushing up outside a tobacconists in the city centre, was about nineteen or twenty, most definitely overdressed in his pinstriped suit (which looked slightly too big). His colleagues were wearing jeans and t-shirts. He looked so tired and weary as if he'd worked there for years or as if he knew he'd be there forever, sweeping that same street. A Groundhog Day ghost in a world that kept moving about him.
Or he could have just been hungover and gone to work straight from a wedding. But there's no oddness to be weaved from that.
