The best of what's around

Heather Mallick's latest, in which she gets told off by Margaret Atwood (so you learn sans context). I learn that Margaret Drabble is reading Jules Verne this summer (thanks Leah). And that books win! (naturally-- though I think there are even books written by people not named Jonathan and also people with xx chromosomes.) India Knight on why erasing history is a bad thing, and so let's not censor Tintin. Oh! And on Shirley Hughes, who has written some of the books I've always loved-- a wonderful piece, in which I find out that "Dogger" is real!
