Tackles this subject in a non depressing way
Fab. I hope Palin writes more novels. His worldly experience and practical wisdom can show us the overwhelming reality (about what we are doing to our world) through fiction in a non overwhelming way. Enjoyed it and looking forward to more.

The pedants' revolt
People seem to be strangely polarised by Michael Palin.... This the first of his novels that I have read and on the whole it's pretty good. His wealth of experience as a writer shines through and gives life to his main protagonist, also a writer. Unfortunately there is one section of the book that irritates me; the mention of Karlsbad as one part of Yugoslavia but then in Czechoslovakia..... The two former states were not even close to each other! This aside, it is well written and thoroughly engaging.
