Oh, Mr Self, with these Blog Posts you are really spoiling us.

So, I sent Mr Will Self (of Shooting Stars fame)* my essay “Literature, History And The Humanization Of Bioethics” because it had a passage about one of his short stories. (Leberknödel, which can be found in Liver.) I am glad to say he didn’t hate it and was kind enough to have the relevant extract put on his website here. Anyway, I don’t know if this counts as ‘impact‘ but I am going to crow about it indefinitely.


* Obviously Will is more famous for being an Author and getting fired from the Observer for the most spectacular of reasons but to a certain generation (my generation) he will always be remembered as the Captain of Team A!
