  1. Your interesting interview encouraged us to find a novel by Jonathan Bennett. Being in Peru, our options were limited but we were able to download Entitlement to my Kindle. (What a boon to the traveller e-readers are!. What a read! Once we’re back we’ll find After Battersea Park and The Colonial Hotel. Thank you for the continuously inspired and inspiring interviews.
