OK, well, I can't pretend I haven't been negligent. So apologies, and please forgive me. I have had many kind and generous letters and emails about Kicking the Bar, and even a review or two. One such called the book 'haophazard', which i rather agree with, and was perhaps somewhat intentional. I do hope all of you who have actually read the damn thing have enjoyed it. there are of courser all sorts of changes I'd love to have made, but there we are... I hope it will find its way into libraries and perhaps take the place of a previous biography. If you have an influence in such matters, please use it! I am now working on two more projects that may or may not come to fruition under Unbound auspices: a biography of the great Jewish boxing cham,pion, Daniel Mendoza, and a collection of short stories. It may be that you will hear more about at least one of these in the new year.... I am altogether Blanche Dubois, relying in my case on the kindness both of friends and strangers. In the meantime, here is a link to a recent piece - by me - on Daniel Mendoza: https://www.commentarymagazine.com/articles/mendoza-the-jew/
