THE PRINTED WORD

Having just noticed that the initiator of the latest "book" thread left the site taking the discussion with him, it's my turn again to revive it; being too important a topic to be dropped, imo.

Having finished "Get Carter" by Ted Lewis over the Holidays, I'll soon start with "Jack Carters Law", a prequel set in late 60s Soho.

  • 3412704605?profile=RESIZE_930xWorth a look if you get the chance. Substance over speed

    • From now on you'll be known as the Slow Runner... :-D

  • 3201177478?profile=RESIZE_930xCan't say much about it yet, but I read the tips for folding suits into a case are invaluable! ;-)

    • Please let us know if it's good. Nice to see a grown up book being reviewed 

  • Arrived today. I’m going to the exhibition in Leicester on Monday, I’ll let you know how both pan out.

    • Working my way through this at the moment; typeface is small and dense, so it’s quite slow going. Laughed out loud at this bit so thought I’d share.

      Never did that, no car and wouldn’t have gone down well on the bus but I can definitely identify with the need to keep the creases sharp. At around 13 I asked my mum if she could please not press a crease into the sleeve and cuff of my shirts ( I hate that till this day). You can guess the answer and from then on I was as addicted to the ironing board as I was to shoe polish. 

    • Nah, but then I’ve always been ‘weird’ myself,  so I’m probably not in the best place to judge Ernie. ;o)

    • Hahaha, probably in a Mini too Ernie, so knee touching would have been unavoidable. When you put it like that, yeah it’s weird. Must have been a struggle getting their kit back on in the car too, can’t imagine them arriving at a club and stepping out in their pants. 

    • A friend of mine drove in jeans and then changed into his suit in the parking lot.
