Beekeeping, snail collecting, tormenting telemarketers and claiming the last roast potato all feature in Modern Delight, a collection of essays from the great and the good.
The essays are about the joys of life. Gyles Brandreth takes pleasure in outliving his colleagues. Tim Rice likes mowing the lawn. Bill Nighy delights in just about everything. But who collects snails? Don't make me buy the book to find out.
