MEDIA REVIEWS

Some pairings can be relied upon - literature and life, Steptoe and Son, Lennon and McCartney, Nicholas Royle and a good anthology.

-- Andrew O'Hagan

Royle's (excellent) taste means that little explosions of weirdness or transcendence often erupt amid much well-observed everyday life.

-- Boyd Tonkin * The Independent *

The tips are all good, the exercises useful, and the recommended books will give you quite a reading list!

-- Graeme Shimmin
