At the Guardian, here. He’s one of my absolute favourite authors, a really wonderful storyteller.
I’m also super-impressed and delighted that the 12-year-old interviewer asked this question:
‘On a recent visit to a 16th century house called East Riddlesdon Hall, I found an early Victorian child’s sampler that used the ampersand (&) as a full stop. Have you ever come across this before and do you have any idea why they might have done this?
I have never heard of this, and I am quite fascinated. And troubled: my typographical philosophy is being shaken.’
