 GILLON AITKEN - MY MENTOR AND FRIEND


So very sad to hear yesterday that Gillon, simply the best agent in the world and a generous, witty, wise man who gave me my start in publishing died yesterday. I was his rather bolshy secretary in the 1970s - fresh out of university and ostentatiously unable to do shorthand. Gillon said that he always wrote very short letters and that he would tell me what he wanted to say and why and then I could write them. Was that all right? Could anyone have a more delightful boss? I learnt so much from him - he was a brilliant chess player and he was always three moves ahead of everyone else in business. He would be surprised to know how very deeply his towering. elegant ;presence will be missed.

 LEAD REVIEW IN SUNDAY TIMES


Great to come back from holiday to see the wonderful review of James Sharpe's history of violence in England 'A FIERY AND FURIOUS PEOPLE today. The Times review is as glowing and more coming in - it's a book that grabs the reader as despite its 750 pages it has so many unforgettable anecdotes.

 NICK KNOWLES TO BBC BOOKS


Nick has a  passion for the kind of vegetarian and vegan food that makes a proper family meal. BBC books have pre-empted rights in his first cookery book which will come out this January. This is full of recipes that are attractive, nutritious and will appeal to active healthy males as well as slimmers. There's a big marketing campaign and Nick's going to be the new name in sensible 'flexitarian' cooking.
