Love: 60. The concept is as improbable in life as it would be in a tennis score. The two go together like my cat and the Large Hedron Collider. Or so I thought four decades ago when I was 22 and a review copy of a book on "Sex for the over-sixties" was sent in to the magazine where I worked. The features editor, as a diversion from his own shameful secret that he was over 30, had much fun in thinking of elderly, female literary agents to whom he might forward it anonymously. In the Sixties, nobody could possibly be in their sixties. Even my parents weren't that antique. Like The Beatles, I took "When I'm 64" to mean "When pigs fly over the Abbey Road studios".

Included in Katie Roiphe's elegantly written account of seven unorthodox literary marriages between 1910 and 1939 are H G and Jane Wells, Vanessa and Clive Bell, Katherine Mansfield and Middleton Murry, and Radclyffe Hall and Una Troubridge; infidelities, semi-detached marriages, ménages à trois, bisexuality and lesbian cohabitation. These experiments in living together, conducted by a small number of literary lions in revolt against Victorian repression, demanded much courage. But in avoiding the hypocrisy of the Victorians, they invented new hypocrisies of their own.

Second-half strikes from Luke Chambers and Garath McLeary boosted Nottingham Forest's League One play-off aspirations in a 2-0 triumph over second-placed Carlisle United at Brunton Park last night.
