    One of these days I'm going to persuade Ben Wheatley to direct a film based on a script by Robert McFarlane and force luka to watch it like in A Clockwork Orange.

    I reviewed Underland for 4columns

    http://4columns.org/reynolds-simon/underland

    Really enjoyed it (and the previous one Landmarks, a celebration of other earlier Nature writers and formative influences - although that one can be ever so slightly prissy in its precision lyricism - a quality that's gone with the new book, the prose is loosened up, for the better).

    When I was reading Underland, I actually thought, "I'll Amazon this to Luke as a surprise, he'll dig it ".... but then something checked the impulse, I thought "actually, I bet he won't dig it, I bet he doesn't like Macfarlane at all.... "

    But I could not have imagined the ferocity of the loathing!

    You should have sent it. His face would have been a picture.

    A signed copy personally addressed to him.

    "Dear Luke,

    May you wander the wild and untamed lands in great joy and health.

    Keep the faith.

    Your pal,

    Rob."

    It's great when Luke really has it in for somebody. His Woody Allen rant is one of the best.

    Is it on here or is it a party piece?
