I suppose everyone has their own Paris, and “everyone” includes Curzio Malaparte. He would have liked nothing more than to be considered the bad boy of 20th-century Italian letters, though there were many who were far worse than him. Performance was in Malaparte’s nature, never more so than in his delicious writings. Even his name

In his 14 years at Westminster Cathedral, Canon Christopher Tuckwell became a fixture of the Catholic world, his booming voice and sturdy presence bringing consolation to many.

Catholics make up an increasing proportion of Conservative voters and supporters, as well as activists like myself.
