A really exciting auction for Mike Shooter's memoir DIVINEST SENSE; STORIES FROM LIFE AND THERAPY was won by Rowena Webb, non-fiction publisher of Hodder, who bought world rights in a hard fought bidding war. Mike is retired President of the Royal College of Psychiatry and his book gives voice to the young people he has worked with over a lifetime of working at the forefront of mental illness therapy.

A really splendid party last night to celebrate JIM POWELL's publication at my favourite London bookshop in Bury Place.

TOBY JONES will read the adaptation for BOOK AT BEDTIME starting next Monday on Radio 4.
