GUEST,Jon Dudley Folkies and their vehicles (51* d) RE: Folkies and their vehicles 08 Mar 10


Leveller, I went to the thoroughly admirable 'Much Ado About Books' in Alfriston on Saturday and purchased 'Wildwood' which I am now three quarters of the way through. It is an inspirational book and beautifully crafted, full of 'poetry' that doesn't hold up the narrative flow if you know what I mean. Plus it's choc-a-bloc with wonderfully arcane facts. His CV reads like I wish mine did - 'educated Peterhouse Cambridge, entered advertising agency became copywriter and creative director, wrote the slogan "come home to a real fire" for the Coal Board' - and then the best bit - 'taught English at school in Diss'. So presumably he gave up all the expense account lunches (they went on for most of the afternoon), the high living and what was undoubtedly a pretty high standard of living in the material sense - to pursue his dreams and ideals, what a bloke! As The Grauniad obit says, "he changed the weather". Nicely put.
