Exit Zamyatin

He was there on Monday – Harry saw him – but yesterday morning, around lunchtime, he was gone. In place of the blurb for We some vandal had scrawled: ‘Off-peak travel cards start at 9.30.’

Perhaps because I’d taken my camera with me. Cameras, I find, get in the way of what you’re looking at and can make things vanish.

While on public notices, I saw today in Waterstones a new (to me) shelving category, sited between Celebrities and True Crime: ‘Painful Lives’. No one, happily, was browsing.
