I know that we were meant to don black armbands and fly the flags at half-mast when Dawn French and Lenny Henry went bang, but personally I was pleased. I've had beef (and how fitting is that word, considering how fat we both are!) with that bitch since way back in the day, when I refused to be in a 1994 South Bank Show. This was some sort of celebration of morbid obesity – sorry, a "personal celebration of Big Women, drawing on art, photography, fashion, film and sculpture to ask why Big Women, who were revered and celebrated throughout the history of art, are now ignored by today's culture."

Frederick Reiken's haunting and ambitious new novel begins in Florida, then moves between America, the Caribbean and Israel. The title suggests illusion, paradox, the artifice used in film. As if to underline this, Reiken writes that "we comprehend that what we see will never coincide with absolute reality." Day for Night demands we trust the author from the off, as the narrative appears so random. The year is 1984. Dr Beverly Rabinowitz, her lover David and his 13-year-old son, are taken by a guide, Tim, to swim with wild manatees. It should be exhilarating but instead it feels sad. David has leukemia and has asked Beverly to adopt Jordan should he die.
