Wednesday's Quote of the Day
"If The Enchantress of Florence doesn't win this year's Man Booker I'll curry my proof copy and eat it" - Ex-Booker judge John Sutherland might be reaching for the turmeric
Prof Sutherland made this bold statement several months ago. Now Salman Rushdie's opus has failed to make the Booker shortlist, making it exceedingly unlikely that it will now win. The venerable critic that backed it has yet to indicate whether he favours Vindaloo or Thai Green.
