Nothing Succeeds Like Excess
This week’s poem was suggested by my mother, who found it in an old newspaper clipping. It is called “Dear Old Aunt Maud” and it was written by Bill Knott, the restaurant critic of The Telegraph at the time, who has gone on to write for The Financial Times, Bloomberg, and The Oldie, and is an ambassador for Action Against Hunger.
This week’s choice is by Thomas Hardy and seems appropriate for Christmas Eve.
A Day Like Any Other
This week’s choice is by Gareth Owen and mixes the marvellous with the mundane.
