Book of the fortnight
The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse – Charlie Mackesy
Mackesy’s tenderly-drawn sketches of the unshakeable bond between four unlikely friends have been seen all over the world, from billboards in Singapore to walls in NHS wards. ‘The boy asks the mole, “What do you think success is?” “To love,” says the mole.’

Emily in Paris
The show has riled up critics on both sides of the Atlantic, either protesting that Emily’s Americanisms are overly crass or the Parisian characters are lazy clichés. Give it a watch for no other reason than to see what all the fuss is about.
Watch Emily in Paris on Netflix.
