Along with writing, I also love to read and it was great to be able to combine my love of writing with my love o0f reading.

I wrote this review:

of a fascinating academic book. “Laughter, Literature, Violence, 1840-1930” by Jonathan Taylor.

for the author it was a true labour of love taking 5 years to write. As a reader it was a pleasure to devour the knowledge accumulated by Jonathan Taylor. He does have an advantage as he is a gifted creative writer and those he teaches at Leicester University are really lucky to have him!
