paper bags and sobriety

A couple of new articles by me have just appeared online:

1. For How We Get To Next, I wrote about the author of one of my favourite items in my collection of weird old cookery books. I don’t like it for the recipes, but because of the earnest egomania exhibited therein: the author Nicolas Soyer really wanted to change society for the better, via paper bags. I found this so full of pathos, I even wrote a play about him several years ago. Here’s the article.

2. For Standard Issue magazine, I wrote about being someone who doesn’t drink very much and how this is unacceptable to most people even though there is MORE BOOZE FOR THEM. Chug it down HERE.
