The only event of importance last week was my victory over Henry by ten and eight. If you don't want to hear about that, then I shall have to pass on to you a few facts about his motor bicycle. You'd rather have the other? I thought so.

Not Pooh (though I like Pooh, especially read by Alan Bennett, who just gets Eeyore) but Milne for grown-ups. Written for Punch in the early 1920s, these short stories are a long delightful burble of humour, usually involving the same small group of friends - playing cricket, bathing, sailing - and the long-vanished world of house parties. They are gossamer-light, and, I think, very funny.

This is the most hilarious book I've read in I don't know how long! It is full of short stories and plays that are absolutely priceless and on par with the likes of Wilde and Wodehouse, but certainly have a distinct flavour all their own. My faith in Milne was shaken after reading Two People, but this has restored my belief that he is, indeed, brilliant.
