    Reading the Everyday
     
    I enjoy Joe Moran's articles in the New Statesman. He writes about ordinary stuff in a revealing and interesting way. So I'm looking forward now to opening my copy of his book, Reading the Everyday. In which some of the most under-explored, banal aspects of life come under his critical gaze: office life, commuting, car parking, motorways, new towns and mass housing. This has come out of the Department of English and American Studies at Liverpool John Moores University. Good to know they're not wasting their time on less mundane things there.
