Not my bag

Every day last week a friend or a family member phoned to tell me that Jon Snow – anchorman of Channel 4 News – was going to be on Desert Island Discs. Why were they calling to tell me that? Do they think that because Frances, the heroine of my new novel, hero-worships Jon Snow, it means that I do too? Why would they think that?

Yesterday I caught up with the programme on iPlayer and it was interesting to hear Jon Snow talk about his life and times. But his choice of music left me cold, so his new wife has nothing to fear -I shan’t be running away with him (and neither will Frances.)
