We apologise for the interruption to our service over the last 6 weeks. The author has been cloistered in a low-ceiling cottage in Dorset, alternately banging his head on the beams and writing Swim Better, Swim Faster (Bloomsbury, available in all good bookshops next year).
Manuscript sent to publisher this afternoon, van being packed up tomorrow, Eurotunnel on Friday, and we're back on the road. First stop, Brittany. Whoo.
