About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published four books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars, Salisbury Square and Buster & Moo. In addition I have published three anthologies of short stories and a memoir of my mother. More will appear soon. I will try and continue to blog regularly at geofflepard.com about whatever takes my fancy. I hope it does yours too. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    I prefer optimism and would like to wait and see, rather than assume, Geoff.

      I know Noelle and you are right but a year with Brexit as well as countless Middle Eastern horrors and bombs on France and Belgium does feel like it will go down as rather exceptional

  11. And this was before Leonard Cohen and Robert Vaughn died! (To be fair, they probably noted what was going on in the States and decided there was no point in hanging on any longer…)
