More farewells…

2016 has already seen off some of the biggest names in rock music, and now it seems that literature is the next target with Harper Lee and Umberto Eco gone in the same 24 hour period.

The former was responsible for cementing my love of reading in my teen years (To Kill a Mockingbird), while the latter was a constant feature of my attempts at betterment when I put myself through two degrees in my thirties (Kant and the Platypus, The Role of the Reader, Art and Beauty in the Middle Ages).
