“I should like the reader to be aware that a book of mine is written in the English language, which I love with all my heart and write to the best of my ability and with the most honorable of intentions — which is to say, I am peddling no quackery, masking no intent to tyrannize, and asking nobody’s pity. (I suspect that I am trying to save my own soul, but that’s nobody else’s business.)”

Archive Bookstore, NW1. A couple of turns away from Edgware road lies this joy. Very rare titles at reasonable prices going back to the 18th century. Downstairs is devoted to sheet music and you’d be hard pressed to find a better selection! http://www.archivebookstore.co.uk/

“I just write about what I feel I want to write about. I’m like a kid. I get an idea, and it’s like a kid’s toy that you push and tug around the room. It’s fun, it’s bright, it’s pretty and maybe it’ll go clack-clack or whiz-whiz, whatever it happens to do. I like to make believe.”
