Bite Size Theory: Required Writing

“I keep novels and detective stories in my bedroom, so that visitors shan’t be tempted to borrow them; the sitting room houses the higher forms of literature (and my jazz books, a far from exhaustive collection), while the hall I reserve for thoroughly worthy items calculated to speed the parting guest.” Philip Larkin, 1983, Required Writing: Miscellaneous Pieces 1955-1982, Faber and Faber.
