I’ve been having a stab at colouring without the magic of Photoshop. I hauled out some old acrylic paints I inherited from my brother and a tin of white pearlgo and started drawing and painting in Joseph Heller’s second novel – Something Happened. I think he would approve. He wrote Something Happened to show how boring and mundane life can be – in hindsight, perhaps he chose a dud topic for a book. Nonetheless millions of people, hoping for a bit more of that Catch 22 magic, own copies of Something Happened. So if you haven’t burned it, sold it and aren’t using it to prop up a table – perhaps you too should make use of it. Here’s an icecream on page 181.
