Favourite book in the world ever written?   A dead heat between A Farewell to Arms and Brideshead Revisited

Last book you read?  The Fire and the Word: A History of the Zapatista Movement by Gloria Muñoz Ramírez

A hitherto unknown fact about yourself?  I used to be very good at swimming backstroke

What would your superpower be?   Teleportation, every time

What was your favourite subject at school?  History with Mr King

If you were a biscuit, what biscuit would you be and why?   Garibaldi, like the red shirts of the mighty Nottingham Forest

Favourite colour?  Orange

If you were a cheese, what would you be and why?  Cropwell Bishop Stilton (the cheese factory is cycling distance from my mum’s)

What do you think about garden Gnomes?  Not to be trusted. Ever. Sneakeh lil things.

If you were a womble, what would you like to find and how would you make use of it? I read this in the style of “If I Were A Rich Man” from Fiddler on the Roof so all I can think of now is “Ya ba dibba dibba dibba dibba dibba dibba dum”. To answer “seriously”, I would find books and magazines and make use of them by offering them to people to read… I think I want to be a womble librarian.

Childhood ambition?  Playing for Nottinghamshire but my batting (and my bowling and my fielding) let me down ☹

Childhood Crush?  Gillian Anderson and/or David Duchovny
