Foot in Mouth Disease...

AA Gill strolls into the shop and I pounce.

"Fancy a spot of writing?"


"Just a signature or ten?"

He signs Breakfast at the Wolseley and is charming and funny. Then he asks to have a look at our collection of Edward Gorey books. I grab a stack.

"My favourite is The Gashlycrumb Tinies" I say, brandishing the deadly alphabet.

"H is for Hector, done in by a thug! Hah! hah! hah!"

"I have a son named Hector" says Mr Gill.

Ahh...not again!
