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

Richard Carter’s fascinating exploration of his local grouse-moor in West Yorkshire digs deep into natural history, human history, prehistory, and the history of science. His writing is grounded, insightful, and frequently hilarious, and he shows how falling in love with your own local patch can be a gateway to the whole world.
Neil Ansell, author and journalist
