For the past month or so it has, in one way, been sheer pleasure to be a golfer. That last term is always used loosely, you understand, for in another way life on the fairway (again, a word that is used generically) has been the usual mixture of frustration, disbelief and resignation. And woods have been responsible for the range of emotions.

John Irving, who never gives short measure, treats the readers of his 12th novel to a double master-class in the arts of writing – and of cooking. As stuffed and spiced with the pleasures of slow-roasted plot and savoury digression as any of his books, Last Night in Twisted River (Bloomsbury, £18.99) can with equal relish argue that "rewriting was writing" against the purveyors of "first-draft gibberish" and disclose the secret ingredient for perfect pizza. It's honey. "I made pizza dough for years and years, and honey was a late discovery," says the creator of generously-portioned bestsellers, whose prowess in the wrestling ring has until now overshadowed his gourmet side.

A double honour for the storm-tossed Amy Winehouse this week. First, a wax model of the singer was put on display at Madame Tussauds, in response to thousands of requests from the public. Her parents posed with the (amazingly lifelike, for once) waxwork, which stood 6ft high – 9ins of which were taken up by her hair and heels. Elsewhere, a farmer called Marlon Brooks, from Ludham, Norfolk, finding that his traditional scarecrow was ineffective in frightening local wildfowl away from his sugar-beet, redesign-ed it with heavy make-up, tattoos, beehive hair, fishnet stockings, cigarette and bottle of brandy – and found it was a great success. "The pigeons are terrified," he said. "They're sitting up on the telephone wires, too scared to come into the field. It's brilliant. Every farmer needs an Amy scarecrow."
