Let's see, what can I tell you ...
I was born at a very young age in the fair city of York, but have since lived in various places in Europe and beyond. I'm politically left wing, good in a crisis, and a man of gentle manners. On the minus side, I am absolutely terrible at directions, and can be disconcertingly frank!
Foucault's Pendulum (the first half of which is the funniest book I've ever read)
the Hornblower stories
My Family and Other Animals
the Alexandria Quartet
several speeches from Shakespeare.
A special place for Asterix and Tintin.
Music: mostly Classical, esp. piano.
Orange is the New Black is amazing (and personally I prefer Piper over Alex, though I am well aware the matter is not universally settled).
Watching the Mentalist was for most of its running almost a spiritual experience.
