Your book of essays, Scribble, Scribble, Scribble, dwells on subjects from how to make a souffle to the "cowboy pieties" of George W Bush. In one sense you might say it's a testament to never saying no to a commission?
I fear so. I do say no from time to time, but not half often enough. I have this magpie instinct for the next glittering object. There are one or two things I know I can't write about though: Diy, cricket, automobile repair. I could study it for a lifetime and not produce a word on the carburettor.
You were introduced at the Hay festival as "critic, foodie and groover". Is that a description you recognise?
Groover is probably horribly accurate, I'm afraid. I am somebody who has never been able to give up 60s habits.
