The poor bloke will have to undergo an enormous battery of tests including a carbon date unless he's clutching an early medieval text. Then all tests, and indeed bets, are off.

I am presently listening to Julian Barnes reading from his The Man in the Red Coat. Although he doesn't realise it, I think he is in the middle of a forgery scam. Unfortunately the talk is now off the list of things you can listen to but if anybody has the book or can get hold of it, let them sing out. (I can't 'cos they've closed the libraries and Barnes is too noble to be cheaply got from Amazon... da dah). Anyway the dramatis personae consists of these (so far, I'm only ten minutes in and there's an hour to go) and include a number of wrong 'uns. Plus enough right-ons to get our own book up and running. Get on it!
