Catholic Herald Archive
I have just stumbled upon the Catholic Herald archive, and in particular my short-lived association with the newspaper. I reviewed books of all sorts: biographies of Joyce Cary, Dora Carrington, Gerard Manley Hopkins (two - not surprising I suppose), Kafka and Conrad, novels by William Trevor, Martin Amis, Carlos Fuentes, Celine (phew!), Tisma, Skvorocky, and so on. My favourite book was a notebook kept by Mircea Eliade. I lasted from January 89 to April 91, when I must have been outed as a confirmed Anglican. Anyway, should anyone be remotely interested, you can read them here.
