Copies of the paperback edition of Sue Elliott and Steve Humphries book of memories of the last survivors just arrived. It's a book of extraordinary stories from the last of those (my own mother's generation) who were born into a world still reeling from the Great War, who grew up in the terrible economic depression of the 1930s only to have to confront the horror of a further global conflict. I think that anyone who thinks it might be a good idea to leave the EU should read this book - and would then understand that union is our bulwark against war in Europe happening again.....

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. He's a wonderful natural stylist and this book will make waves as he has very strong opinions about the organization of mental health services within the NHS.

A really splendid party last night to celebrate JIM POWELL's publication at my favourite London bookshop in Bury Place. Great speeches by Picador editor RAVI MIRCHANDANI and by Jim himself and a packed room of well wishers (and book buyers.) TOBY JONES will read the adaptation for BOOK AT BEDTIME starting next Monday on Radio 4.
