Thank you for the laughter – Alan Coren 1938-2007

Sad to read that the broadcaster, writer, humourist, and legendary wit Alan Coren has died.

I remember his voice from decades of “The News Quiz”, and have several of his books in my collection. His humour tended to the dry and observational, and was always perfectly focused. One of the few writers to have made me laugh out loud, and I’ll miss that!
