“Sod the wine, I want to suck on the writing. This man White is an instinctive writer, bloody rare to find one who actually pulls it off, as in still gets a meaning across with concision. Sharp arbitrage of speed and risk, closest thing I can think of to Cicero’s ‘motus continuum animi.’

Probably takes a drink or two to connect like that: he literally paints his senses on the page.”

I suppose if you're going to set light to the quail you might as well light up a ciggy as well and save gas (or the forrest if one uses matches).

Enjoyed your latest piece on old vines and old musicians, by the way.
