Tensher Tensher said the Hensher

Have got the Philip Hensher novel about the clerks of the House Of Commons from the library from its central store, for the 85p reservation fee. Do not think I am going to bother any more with it it suffers from
a) as far as I can see having exactly the same characters as the other Philip Hensher novel I read described in exactly the same way (figuratively not literally, it is not a prequel)
b) and the funeral described was very much like the wedding in the other one
c) and as I have said before, decades of SF, fandom, geekdom have made me so jaded that a mild sex scandal amongst the great and good of London doesn't really interest me. Unless there are furries at the very least, I don't want to know.
