David Smiley: Military officer who became a master of irregular warfare

In a military career that encompassed clandestine operations in the Balkans, the Middle East and South-east Asia, as well as more conventional soldiering with the Royal Horse Guards (the “Blues”) during the Second World War, David Smiley was one of Britain’s most skilled proponents of irregular warfare – and his post-war activities were to prove equally as colourful.

Melanie McDonagh: Babies are the batons in the parents' relay race

Perhaps the only thing more terrifying than the Secretary of State for Children and Families taking advice from agony aunts is the nature of the problems they talk about. Ed Balls got together with an anguish (the collective noun of their choice) of aunts last week to unveil a new Cabinet Office report on the family. And it made dispiriting reading: apparently there's no such thing as a "typical" family any more because a quarter of families are single parent. But among parents who jointly raise their children, there's a new take on the whole business. The authors of the Cabinet Office report – and one would love to know about their own home lives – have called it "relay parenting". It involves two busy individuals more or less passing the baton of childcare on to each other on a daily basis. One arrives home to take up the task of childminding, leaving the other free to get to an appointment outside. It saves on babysitting, but the inevitable effect is that couples have less "alone time". And this, pronounces the Cabinet Office, is bad for their relationships.

Where to go, how to save, what to avoid

Biografi, by Lloyd Jones

First published in 1994, long before his Booker-shortlisted Mister Pip made him an international name, this is Lloyd Jones's story of a trip around Albania in the aftermath of communism, in search of the body double of the late Communist dictator, Enver Hoxha.
