  • "Not as much as I should. Because, instead of sending people to Ibiza I sat in the office reading Malcolm X and Maya Angelou and The Souls of Black Folk. I read about the Mutiny and Partition and Mountbatten. And one morning I started reading Midnight's Children in bed. Have you read that one?"
