Subplots Extra: More on shame, and being friend-zoned, and Matroyshka dolls


I started this as the first entry in next week’s Subplots post. But then it grew, and grew, and it turned out I had quite a bit to say. So I’m releasing it early, as bonus, solus post.

Subplots 3: Second weddings hit different, don't they? Or maybe it's just me.


Subplots is my weekly snapshot of where I am in life, what I’ve been up to, what’s been preoccupying me etc. The life of a writer is pretty varied, and though much of my time is spent alone at the desk chatting to imaginary people, not all of it by any means. So here’s (some of) the rest…

The Saturday Compendium 3: Hedonic Adaptation, Bionic, None of This is True, and more...


I trawl through the highs and lows of culture and ideas, so you don't have to.

Subplots 2: Book club, book launches, books that won't do as they're told


What I've been up to this week...

The Saturday Compendium 2: London Tide, Straight Pride, and more.


What's been tickling my fancy? What's been grinding my gears? I trawl through the highs and lows of culture so you don't have to.

The Saturday Compendium: 1


The Breeders, confidence, Couples' Therapy and more. What's been floating my boat? What's been getting my goat?
