I'm just reading Chocolate and Cuckoo clocks, an anthology of the best writing by Alan Coren. He was one of the greatest humourists in the English language. I bumped into a chap from Birmingham once when I was on a small Greek Isle and we spent the best part of the hour conversing in Idi Amin, Alan Coren styley. Memorable. If you get a chance to pick this book up, please do and you will realise what a real wordsmith is. The columnists of today can't hold a candle to the man. Brilliant.
