For the time being at least, Toby Litt is my favourite author.
He writes beautifully, makes me laugh and makes me think. I was already in love with the way he writes in such different styles – each book completely different from his others. Then my friend Dave pointed out that he’s writing a book for each letter of the alphabet:
Adventures in Capitalism
I can only assume his ambition is to write 26 in total and this fills me with joy. His website teasingly informs me that H is finished but won't be published until next year.
