The clocks go back tonight. Or is it forward? (Spring back / Fall forward… Spring forward / Fall back… that’s no help at all). Anyway, the upshot is that I get an extra hour in bed tonight, and that is something to be cherished.
In honour of this event (which sees Merton Colleg hold a ceremony involving drinking whilst walking backwards around a quadrangle) I shall pose a literary/clock question… in which books are clocks important? Not necessarily time travel, just significant clocks.
I’ve got two, both children’s books, off the top of my head… let’s see if you can match those or find others… you’ve got an extra hour to think about it!
