Our second day in Hay dawns with a new determination to exercise a degree more diligence to the cause than was exhibited yesterday, for yesterday the lure of the festival bar and myriad eateries proved too much for one whose flesh is sadly weak in relation to such matters. So here we are bright and early and fully equipped for a long day at the races. Shortly, one of Ireland’s national literary treasures,
Colm Toibin, beckons. Thereafter, an edition of BBC3’s educational and entertaining series “The Essay”, and last but by no means least, and much to the delight and delectation of the lady of the party, the eponymous Jude Law, the man earmarked to play me in the inevitable forthcoming biopic. Indulge me in my dreams. Pip pip and anon.
