Astragal: No mean time

  • Comment

Community planner Brian Anson is back from his Dordogne fastness, complete with a new literary work. He seems to have abandoned the angry tone of his classic I'll Fight You For It, which dealt with his epic struggle to preserve Covent Garden from the bulldozers, for a more lyrical attempt at imitating Voltaire. Called Tommy and the Two-Faced Man, it is a charming allegorical tale, ostensibly for children, whose main theme concerns a young child gazing at a spaceship from a bedroom in Greenwich. A tale for the Millennium, perhaps.
