Many of us over 60 are counted out when part-time jobs come up despite our collective wisdom and abilities.

The Fix and other books

The Fix by Damian Thompson (Collins)

I haven't done a book review for aeons.

I have continued my reading on Italy, India and America:

The Pursuit of Italy by David Gilmour (****)

India: A Sacred Geography by Diana L. Eck (highly original)


Barack Obama by David Maraniss (which I didn't much care for)

Little America: the War within the War for Afghanistan by Rajiv Chandrasekaran
(brilliant - what a fiasco that country has become)

plus two on Roger Bannister

The First Four Minutes by RB


3:59:4: the quest to break the first four minute mile by John Bryant

(I went to the Iffley Road track at Oxford to see Sir Roger light the Olympic
flame and felt I ought to know more about that mile....).

Meanwhile.......The Fix is a book about addiction - shopping, iPhone-itis,
alcohol, drugs, port, gambling and cup cakes. Tasty.
