"At its best, the book has a delightful tone of foppish grandeur, achieving without much fuss a kind of phenomenological intensity in entries such as "Walking Back Home Drunk" or "Poking the Fire". Remember, too, that most things are improved with "a cup of smouldering tea", on which note I must leave you, as the kettle has just boiled" Guardian
