Books - The Lord of the Rings
by Dylan Thoman (OK - it's a "Play for Voices" but
the language is so perfect, so lyrical, so exquisite that it takes
your breath away - a work of genius) and
Curious Pleasures, a gentleman's collection of beastliness
IT, please! - available from Amazon - RIDICULOUSLY funny).
Movies - Lots, but notably The Lord of the Rings
(again), Blazing Saddles
(yes, I can be serious too), the St Trinians
movies (the "old
four" and the new one - the new one very different in style, as it
should be, but has its own charm) ... and lots of others.
Music - If it's written by Beethoven
then it's likely to be liked ... in
fact most classical music
to the death of Puccini
in 1924 - though not Gustav
Mahler, never got on with him.
Food - Traditional English, Chinese, Italian ... well, I eat most
