How-to is a fashionable approach to pretty much everything. In these days of oversimplification and loss of direction, everyone wants to know how to. How to make slime, how to wipe your dog’s eyes, how to eat a peach or how to eat human souls. You can ask google, and google will tell you how to. And so for Christmas, I got a book which is called How To Find Love by one of those Guardian readers’ kind of things called The School of Life. It’s a pretty, pocket size book and I was really quite happy when I received it. I still have not read it, but I will very soon, so then I will be able to tell you how to, too.
