Behind Closed Doors, a lively and comprehensive study of London clubs, ... [is] an entertainingly readable and well-researched glimpse into a world that fewer and fewer choose to be a part of, and perhaps rightly so.

Enjoyed reading new books by @MikeFinkel and Pip Williams for the @ObsNewReview this week, although sadly less so a new biography of a fine comic actor - https://t.co/EDkiPgji1R

For my @ObsNewReview shorts round-up, I raved about new books by @fairfairisles and @AnnaLandmark, but was rather less impressed by the latest effort from a once-great historian and biographer - https://t.co/QaX1aQVgO2

This thorough, detailed and fascinating biography should be commended for looking into areas of Kubrick’s personal and professional life that have never previously been discussed... Myths are debunked, and everyone from the Kubrick obsessive to the casual fan will be beguiled.

In a welcome, even blessed, change from writing about Prince Harry and his escapades, I looked at Lady Chatterley's Lover for @TheSpectator, sixty years on from 'Annus Mirabilis', and asked where it stands in Lawrence's canon today - https://t.co/GvpFEmOpwZ
