So much rain. The caryatids at St Pancras Parish Church, Jack Robinson noted on a trip into town last week, have given up trying to look pretty all day and night and have put on their waterproofs.

Meanwhile, there is a long review of Tony Lurcock’s Not So Barren or Uncultivated in Huvudstatsbladet, Finland’s principal Swedish-language newspaper. Att det är fråga om helt olika förhållningssätt övertygar Lurcock en skichligt om. I have no idea what this means, but this could soon change: in March I’m off to a writers’/translators’ retreat on a Swedish island in the Baltic.
