Literary Loitering 105 - My Laudanum Hell

Jun 30, 2019, 07:52 PM
After a lengthy introduction about the pumping of jam and the lack of any noteworthy news relating to Game of Thrones, we kick things off with the lesser-known Tory leadership contest involving the books the contenders have written, after which we find out that people are angry at Jeremy Corbyn (again), for liking a book.

In other news, a wing of a castle that meant nothing to Charlotte Brontë is up for sale, a Russian man has created a business making bespoke signatures, one of the naked statues of Antony Gormley in Scotland has been “vandalised” in a very creative way, the American Christian group Return To Order has sent a petition to Netflix to cancel the Amazon Prime series Good Omens, a new animated feature film based on the Discworld novel The Amazing Maurice & His Educated Rodents has been announced, and Usborne have decided to re-issue their 1976 book The World of the Unknown: Ghosts.
