His “hairless, pale, adolescent-like” comment had some people calling him a dodgy geezer. More like he’d just been reading Frisk and thought the line sounded good. You know what he’s like with his books.
I’ve noticed he plucked out lines from a novel and slipped them into an interview many times. I’d flick through some books and try to find them, but I’ve kind of got other things to do.
