When I lived in Sydney, I was in the habit of reading The Good Food Guide from cover to cover every Tuesday. Yeah. I was one of those wankers. (Even worse, I wrote for them later).
Being in Brisneyland, I rarely pick it up now, but this piece popped into my newsfeed yesterday.

“Nothing but blue skies do I see.”
Wondering if I should read some Martin Amis?
I confess I’ve never read his novels because they’re not very splodey and I figured he didn’t need the money. But everyone’s been saying how good he was, and now he’s dead. I feel like I maybe have missed out.
I didn't read any John Le Carre until after he had submitted his final manuscript, and then I pretty much binged his entire back catalogue. Anybody read any of the Amis novels? Apparently, Money is his best.

This will probably be my only feed until I get home later this arvo, so I’m leaning into it with a couple of big milky cappuccinos.
