Drifting, Jonathan Raban

never read any raban, not the sunglasses, he writes well, his book feels double old fashioned, a trip round britain on a boat as the falklands begin, his writing is slighly dusty and his observations lack naipaul esque brilliance but not bad

watteau drawings royal academy london

died at 37 stayed pretty, destroyed all his pervy drawings which is pity cos woman having an enema is eyeopening. drawings in red and black chalk exceptionally beautiful but his paintings with the same liney energy are better at wallace collection
