272 pages into the Nixon book.
Enjoying it so far. Don’t really know much about Nixon beyond the obvious running against Kennedy & Watergate stuff and the Oliver Stone film of course, which I seem to remember enjoying but of which has to be, by its very nature, heavily fictionalised.
Reads like he had some deep-seated self-esteem issues and couldn’t forgive any slights and had couldn’t just creep a win but had to dominate and destroy.

reading Triumph Of The City by edward glaeser at the moment.
Only just got into it but it is very well written, a nice easy read that deals with some provocative and interesting ideas about city living, worldwide. I got it from my local library so check out yours and take a gander.

Saw this book today.
Fela This Bitch of A Life
I don’t know if this is a reprint of a book with a very similar title or a new book. I suspect the former. Be interesting to see how it sells.

Just found out that a chapter I’ve co-written with Rebecca Bell and Sarah Broadberry for the academic book ‘Writing in the Disciplines’ is now under production. It’s being published by Palgrave Macmillan. Not sure when it’s due out yet. I’ll post when I have more detail.
