Today Snakeskin’s essayist, Bruce Bentzman arrives in Britain (with of course Ms. Keogh, his more significant other) to begin a new life in Wales.
Being a Patrick O’Brian fan, he has crossed the Atlantic by sea, and has already sent dispatches indicating that he has noted the regular flashes of the Portland Bill lighthouse. He also had a taste of Britain on board, when served a pint of London Pride beer. It was not to his liking. (I warn you, Bruce, you’ll find many worse pints in Wales.)
Once established in Wales, Bruce will, of course, continue his series of essays.
When he moved from suburbia, he changed the title of the series from ‘Suburban Soliloquies’ to ‘From the Night Factory’. What we have to consider is – should he mark this new change in his affairs with a new title.
‘A Yank Abroad’?
Doubtless he will think of something.
Meanwhile – Bruce, welcome to Britain. I think you’re going to like it here.
