Wilde? I was livid.

The Wimbledon Book Festival is upon us again, bigger and better than ever in its third year.

I went to see Gyles Brandreth talking about his Oscar Wilde Murder Mysteries last night, which was great fun even though I don't have the books.

Only by a titanic effort of will did I manage to refrain from trotting out Groucho's "from the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it".

I read the Duartion of that gig as "1 hour plus singing" and realised the event must have had some room for improvement.

Duartion for Duration, and singing for signing? Is it your seplling or I site?
