A date for the diary

Those lovely people at Monday Books are holding an event for Theodore Dalrymple's new book - Not With A Bang But A Whimper - on 23/2/10 in Kensington.


Regular Spectator readers will know Dalrymple's unmissable column on the delights of inner city medicine and so forth, others may know his work not written under his nom de plume - 'The Wilder Shores of Marx', 'Monrovia Mon Amour' inter alia.  Having read both of those books, I will happily vouch for his prose.


Anyway, Dalrymple will be doing a Q&A session chaired by Dan Hannan, and for the bagatelle of £16.50, one gets to sit at the feet of these two titans, a hardback copy of the book and wine and nibbles.  Any readers interested should e-mail me and I will pass on the more specific details.  Furthermore, any profit from event will be going to Haiti appeal.


To be updated with hyperlinks, formatted etc a bit later on.

(Full disclosure time - I'm on the guest list for this.  However, I do not promote anything I do not support, so I believe my integrity remains uncompromised).
