A Cheerful Book of Misfortunes
Today I was going to review this chirpy Christmas stocking-filler by my dear old friend, Ean Wood. It is an anthology, collected by Ean over many, many years, of events that turned out badly but are still funny to anyone not personally involved in the situation. I received my inscribed copy from him a couple of weeks ago and was going to write it up nearer to Christmas but today it must serve as a tribute to him. I just received news that he passed away in the Isle of Man earlier today. Ean was a polymath who was interested in everything, and an expert on most things, especially jazz, movies and history. RIP Ean.
