BROUGHT TO BOOK: Curious advert in this week's Observer; Transworld Publishing had taken an eighth of a page and published a 'dear john' letter - that it was a poem to the vague tune of teenage kicks about their desire to publish a certain book and there was an excruciating 'apeeling' pun contained within makes the meaning pretty clear - there's a bidding war for john Peel's memoirs and they're desperate to win it. Today's Daily Mail is reckoning that it's worth half a million, and we'd reckon that to be a fair price - being at the post-Kennedy press conference, the laying in wait for Paul Burnett in a carpark, the vaguely Polanski-esque incident... it'll be quite a read, we're certain.
