Michael Cox's life had almost as many unexpected twists as the plots of the Victorian novels that he loved so much. From debilitating childhood illness, via studies at university and a digression into a rock career, he became an author of slim books on health and scholarly reference works and then an editor at Oxford University Press (OUP). For three decades he lived as much in his own re-creation of Wilkie Collins's foggy milieux as he did the prosaic Midlands around him. Finally, galvanised by the onset of the illness that was to kill him, he turned his jottings into a hefty book, The Meaning of Night (2006), for which, after a bidding war, he received an advance of £500,000, an unprecedented amount for a first novel.

Next week is, apparently, National Vegetarian Week. It seems a bit daft to separate bean-munchers from the rest of the nation's foodies in this day and age, but marketing folk love a "week". In fact, being a vegetarian makes you ahead of the curve in 2009: grocery bills are less stratospheric, and whether or not swine flu has anything to do with pork, you won't be pining for sausages come BBQ time...

My college counts as fully-catered, though we have at our disposal one kitchenette between eight. Not a kitchen, a kitchenette: claustrophobically small, ovenless and with a lot of stainless steel. It's fine, but I've never really had much use for it, apart from for one experimental microwave meal. This worked fine (no explosions), although after discovering the remains of the repast a number of days later, I decided I would do well to stick to foods that stayed more inert when left on a plate for a little while.

It might be my age or it just might be that I've succumbed to the same nonsense that I've ribbed all my Sloane hippy friends about, but it seems that I've "seen the light". I've had a "spiritual" moment out here in Indochina.
