Book Of A Lifetime: Lady Into Fox, By David Garnett

Many moons ago, I spotted a fourth impression of this short, sharp-toothed novel in a Gloucester Road charity shop. I had often heard talk of 'Lady Into Fox', first published in 1922, only 91 pages long and consisting of just the one chapter, but had never before laid eyes on it. I snapped up the slim volume immediately, feasted on its wood engravings and demolished it during a train trip to the South Coast. It pleased me in particular that a previous owner of my copy, a not inappropriately named Janet Leeper, had pencilled her name inside and added the date 5 November 1945, which just happens to be the day I was born.

Business diary: Bank error in your favour for once

Fair play to Ron Delnevo, whose reaction to what must be the biggest nightmare of any chief executive who does what he does is best described as phlegmatic. Mr Delnevo runs Bank Machine, an independent operator of ATMs, and one of his cash machines has just gone badly wrong. Police were called to the machine in Dundee after a large crowd formed, anxious to take advantage of the fact it was paying out double the amounts users were asking for. "If the people using the ATM see it as a bit of fun, so be it," Mr Delnevo said.
