"Whew. Thank fuck its not the Book Keeping Festival!"
For Nick Barley, new head of the Edinburgh Book Festival, its better to stay away from matters numerical.
Nick, no doubt embittered redundant staff will recall, used to be chief executive of The Lighthouse arts project in Glasgow, which went bust under his chief executiveness.
Thankfully, Nick got himself his nice new job.
Good for Nick.
Hopefully he's got plenty of time to catch up on his reading...
