Gread


Snippet from an encounter with Jonathan Meades. Why eat if you aren’t hungry, asks the interviewer, Hermione Eyre.

“Why did Borges buy books after he was blind?”

When I first saw Jonathan Meades on the tv I became convinced I'd dreamed it.

I love Meades and he sold me the idea of the superiority of the north of Europe.

And he lives in Southern France!

He has these Beckett moments sniffer.

Must have been his Surrealism show, Billy. Or maybe you really do dream about him.

Geographical chauvinism and domestic hypocrisy, Geoff. You gotta love the guy.

Sheer inertia, Sniffer. Although my agent Mr Headley puts a more elegant spin on things.
