What book are you reading right now?
Marshlands by André Gide
What’s the last great book you read?
Extinction (again) by Thomas Bernhard
What’s a book you love that no one else has heard of?
I have a certain soft spot for History of Shit by Dominique Laporte.
What book most changed the way you see the world?
This is tough, I’m not sure books work like that. I do return repeatedly to Nietzsche to shake myself up a bit. The Gay Science, for instance.
If you received a £100 book token you had to spend today, what would you buy?
Artaud and the Gnostic Drama by Jane Goodall, bound in black goatskin, though £100 wouldn’t quite do it.
What would be your Desert Island book?
A book with lots of pages that burns well. I’m probably not the first to suggest that, but it’s the only sensible answer really.
