These lemons are so easy to prepare and will last unrefridgerated for up to a year. Once they are well rinsed, they can be used in slow-cooked dishes, salads and all sorts of dressings.

To say that the story of "America's greatest hustler" is like Damon Runyon is something of a tautology. The real Runyon weaves in and out of the book, notably when he observed Thompson's involvement in the murder of Arnold Rothstein, who crops up in The Great Gatsby for fixing the World Series of 1919.

Rebecca Front: 'I recently survived five hours of Heart FM without saying, ‘Will someone turn this dreary cack off now?'
Saturday 28 August 2010
If you ask me, I probably won't tell you. It's not that I don't have opinions. It's just that I rarely proffer them these days. When I was young, I thought that if I said: "Nuclear weapons are bad" or "Women shouldn't be subservient to men", injustice would be wiped out and peace would reign over the earth. Then I grew up and decided I might as well keep my mouth shut. But once opinionated, always opinionated, and if you try to bury those deeply-held views they're just going to pop out elsewhere. It's usually over something trivial. My husband and I have very different tastes in music and force each other to listen to stuff we hate. What started in me as a vague indifference towards, say, Bob Dylan, has become an inability to be in the same room as that self-important, adenoidal keening. Once the children came along, I decided that that, too, was an area where opinions were best suppressed. I wanted them to develop their own tastes, and not have mine rammed down their throats (correct though they undoubtedly are). So imagine my pride, during a recent car journey, when I survived no fewer than five hours of Heart FM without saying, "Will someone turn this arse-achingly dreary cack off now?".

A new collection of poetry by Don Paterson is cause for celebration, and I seized upon this book with a shiver of delight. I was not disappointed: Rain is one of the finest volumes to emerge in years. Paterson's language is unpretentious, yet this ostensible clarity lays bare deeper layers of illusion. His words are a provocation to the reader, an elegant challenge that speaks to the soul.

He may look like the older brother of Justin Bieber, but don't let the youth and fragility of the 19 year-old American comedian Bo Burnham fool you. This is his "United States of Whatever" and he has come to kick some serious comedy butt.
