Tumblr, today it was my birthday.
And I spent most of the day depressed and cranky. Work is really getting to me at the moment and it’s making me really anti social and self pitying.

I’m spending an hour with one of my musical idols (Tom Dickins of Melbourne’s The Jane Austen Argument) as one of my Christmas presents. But then in the afternoon I’m having a drink with a girl from an internet dating site. What do I wear? Should I get a haircut? Will she like...

The thing about young adult fiction
I’ve been trying to collect my thoughts on this topic for a while, and seeing as I just devoured John Green’s excellent new novel The Fault In Our Stars, now seems as good a time as any for a little literary self reflection. The thing is that, despite being nearly 34, I still love reading books written for people approximately two decades younger than me. So the question begs, what...
