|Painting by Mick Turner|
I told him how I bought it, from a fundraising art sale for PAN magazine. He insisted that was ridiculous, that no one would ever donate a Turner to an independent literary magazine run by a bunch of drunken failed intellectuals. It was at this point that three things became clear to me, the first that the man was a prat, the second that he needed to be ejected from my bedroom as soon as possible and the third that he had no idea who Mick Turner is.
What kind of a man doesn't know there's more than one Turner and how to tell the difference between them?
Bad photo, taken by me, without a flash, it looks better in real life, come over and I'll show you.
