We begin this episode with the news that someone has stolen Maurizio Cattelan’s Golden Toilet from Blenheim Palace.
No, seriously. Somebody stole a golden toilet.
Among the other news, Angela Carter’s house finally gets a blue plaque to celebrate her life and work, a gynaecologist has been banned from Twitter for advertising her new book, a petition with 30,000 signatures wants words that discriminate and patronise against women to be removed from the Oxford English Dictionary, Facebook have applied to trademark the work “book” (after apparently successfully trademarking the word “face”), and America goes through another Banned Books week.
Our featured book is Spider-Man: Forever Young by Stefan Petrucha.
