Agree with the above poster saying it shouldn'tve been part biog and part fiction.
I actually didn't mind it - there are complete parts lifted from other sources, and when he goes to by richeys flat and looks out his window to it, it feels a little self indulgent, but decent read on the whole

BUY BOOKS NOT POINTLESS ARCHITECTURE YOU MORONS).
I don't really understand what is happening with libraries in the UK at present. Many are being forced to close, and then some cities are opening up new ones. I've been looking at the new UK libraries online to get ideas for the planning of our new library.

I picked up the Richey book with every intention of reading it, but it was just dreadful. Ben should find his own inspiration elsewhere.
