The Sage of Altrincham (twinned with Canby, I believe) writes:

For the record: it is John Rimmer (i.e. me) who "lives under a
slab in Mortlake Cemetery", or, as I would prefer to put it,
"lives in an quaint period cottage adjoining an attractive and
historic open space", and John Harney (who wrote the posting
that appears to have got you foaming at the mouth) who lives in
a modern apartment in vibrant downtown Bracknell. Maybe before
accusing other people of not reading things, you should get your
own ocular gear in order.

He'll correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think John Harney was
born in Liverpool.

So Hopkins has *two* professions: one is as an artist, and the
other is as a writer of sensationalised books about abductions.
Neither is likely to be harmed by his latest publication.
