The Jackalass

"Is there no balderdash this ass will not produce to grab a headline?"

So sayeth Frederick Forsyth - aka the Jackalass - but about whom?

Who do you think he's referring to?

Well, it's his bete noire, Tony Blair. Am I alone in not seeing No 10 as a House of Balderdash, or Tony Blair as an ass?

The link is to the Jackalass wagging his finger at the book trade for sticking "prize winner" over all the books written by a prize-winning author. Personally, I'm with JG Ballard, who feels that booksellers should use what marketing tactics they can to sell books. As for this year's trinkets . . . I'm afraid I haven't read one iota of any of the shortlisted books for this year's Booker Prize, so no comment there. My excuse? I'm covered in Proust - and boy, he's a real aspirin merchant.

Still, one should always consider the Jackalass' opinion on such issues. For, as the great Noel Gallagher once put it, "I don't pay a whole lot of attention to critics, but when someone like Mick Hucknall says that one of my records is average, I pay attention: because if there's anybody who knows all about making average records it's Mick Hucknall."
