DAVID PEACE SIGNS AT CROCKATT & POWELL
LUNCHTIME WEDNESDAY 5th SEPTEMBER
That's right, the author of the Red Riding Quartet, GB84 and The Damned Utd will be in Crockatt & Powell signing books and chatting to folk. Put it in your diary and make sure you take a day off work if you need to.
Now for a few words about football:
1: David Peace has written one of the best sports books ever (and there's quite a tradition) with his fictional portrait of ol' big head Brian Clough - The Damned Utd. It's our bookgroup book for this month. Read it and come along on Monday 30th April to add your tuppence.
2: Finn went to his first football match on Monday. (He went in the womb quite a few times. In fact we never lost a game when he was at a match in the womb.) We lost 3 - 1 to Man City. Finn had a word with Al and now Coleman has been sacked. Hopefully the next match he sees will involve a bit more football and a bit less rubbish.
3: Did you see Man Utd last night? Now that's how to play football...Chelsea by contrast, what a joke. Liverpool or Utd for the champions league.
4: I'm glad I support a team where you have no problem sitting with a nine month old boy on your lap (not in my usual seat - found a spare right on the end of a row in case of emergency but, like the fireworks when he was four months old, he loved it) rather than the kind of club that attracts idiots who want to kill each other and opposition fans.
