Agh! apologies. Full title of Miranda Seymour's book (bad italics, my bad): In My Father's House!

I love the assumption in your opening question - that we all read in bed. I know I do and doubt that I could fall asleep no matter how exhausted, without reading a few paragraphs of something. I too read prose in bed but mostly magazines. I find that as I get older there is more time between books. I'm not happy about this and imagine that it will change at some point.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
