About this blog

This is a window into the weird world of Anglicanism, as experienced on a Cathedral Close. Has anything much happened since Trollope's Barchester Chronicles? You will still see the 'canon in residence' hurrying across to choral Evensong, robes flapping, as the late bell chimes. But look carefully and you will notice he is checking the football score on his iPhone as he runs. This is also a writer's blog. It charts the agony and ecstasy of the novelist's life. And it's a fighter's blog. It charts the agony and ecstasy of the judo mat. Well, the agony, anyway.

Midsummer Frolics in Lindchester

For the stout-hearted, here's what's going on during the summer solstice in the Diocese of Lindchester: http://unseenthingsabove.blogspot.co.uk/


  1. Just finished reading Acts & Omissions with great delight and enjoyment. Generous, humane, life-enhancing, delicious - and very very funny. (Flashes of David Lodge humour?) Therapy for any Anglican feeling p***** off with the CofE. All that and a reunion with the polecat too. I shall resist the temptation to follow Unseen Things Above on the blog and try to contain my soul in patience until publication next year.

  2. I am half way through acts and omissions and it is wonderful to have another c fox book having lived for years on angels and men, benefits of passion and love for the lost. I should read this new book slowly and eek it out but .......I don't think I have that sort of self control. Thank you so much for returning to writing adult novels
