When I was in my early twenties I used to buy Style Magazine, just for Darrel Bristow-Bovey’s column.
If it was a particularly good month, which it almost always was, I would tear his column out and put it in a flip file, which I still have.
I’m friends with him now, so I can embarrass him (and myself) by posting pictures to prove it.
He made me want to be a columnist, and I didn’t realise it at the time, but he taught me how to be a columnist too.
I’m still learning from him. Killer column in The Times today, Darrel.
I bought his collection of columns (But I Digress) as a gift for my brother and ended up keeping it for myself. The man is a fantastic writer.
Ha Claire, I have that too. I take it when I’m flying JHB – CT sometimes, it’s the perfect short plane ride read.
