Sunday Firesides: A Long Obedience in the Same Direction

Journals in which only the first few pages have been written in. Bibles in which only the first few pages have been creased. Dumbbells gathering dust. Running shoes that still look new. Books yet unopened. Texts yet unanswered. Paints yet unused.  Our lives are littered with the detritus of things once begun (and often begun numerous times), and then abandoned. And we wonder why we haven’t been transformed.  If the starting of things (or the buying of things) is all it took to change...

Dean Koontz: ‘Life is one long suspense novel’

The author, 75, on escaping into books, becoming politicised as a teacher, and not knowing what will happen tomorrowMy first memory is of my mother having serious surgery. I would be about three or four at the time, and because my father was an alcoholic with many problems, including violence, I was sent to stay with a friend of my mother’s while she recovered. Our home was a chaotic house, but here things were totally different. Every night, when she put me to bed, she gave me a cherry ice-crea...

I love awards ceremonies – but losing on Zoom is another story | Hadley Freeman

Witnessing the dashing of other people’s hopes is fascinating. Experiencing my own dashed hopes is, strangely, less soAwards ceremonies are absurd and frivolous, and people say that as if it’s a bad thing. Some children stay up late on Christmas Eve, waiting for Santa Claus. The only night of the year I stayed awake as a kid was Oscars night, waiting to see just how annoyed Barbra Streisand would look when The Prince Of Tides lost to The Silence Of The Lambs in 1992’s Best Film category (answer:...

Jack Richmond Review

Jack, the brand owned and cared for by actor Richard E. Grant, released its fourth and newest scent Richmond last year. Personally, I found Jack’s second and third offerings, Covent Garden and Piccadilly ’69, nothing worth writing about. They certainly weren’t ill-conceived nor poorly executed, but just didn’t excite me with their aesthetic and conceptual ideas. In contrast, the brand’s...
