And here is an off-topic note, but I cannot resist a mention of my other best favorite author Thomas Hardy (can you have TWO bests??). The BBC has a new documentary on his life, The Heart of Thomas Hardy, (link to article in the Telegraph), this to coincide with the new production of “Tess”. And here is a link to his gravesite at the Poets Graves Website.
