Book review: ‘The Year of the Jouncer’ by Simon Gray

Vol. 2 of ‘The Smoking Diaries’.

‘The Year of the Jouncer’ by Simon Gray

The sequel to Simon Gray's wonderfully funny blend of memoir and diary, The Smoking Diaries.

Not quite as entertaining as its predecessor, I think, but I still laughed out loud several times. And the bit where he tries to feed a family of black swans made stuff come out my nose.

Highly recommended.

On the Moor

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
Mark Cocker, author and naturalist
