• "It's not often that you miss your bus stop because you're so engrossed in reading a book about existentialism, but I did exactly that while immersed in Sarah Bakewell's <i>At the Existentialist Café</i>. The story of Sartre, Beauvoir, Camus, Heidegger <i>et al</i> is strange, fun and compelling reading. If it doesn't win awards, I will eat my proof copy"
