Brian Sewell Watch: Might Be Useful To Somebody

"I'm toying with the idea of leaving the country. I have a clique of old ladies and I hope to God that they don't read the book because I'm sure that they will all run away, horrified. But it did seem to me that if I was going to write the damn book, I should be absolutely, scrupulously honest. There are still hundreds and hundreds of young homosexuals saying: "I can't tell my mother." And I thought that talking about my own homosexuality, how it began and how it developed, might be useful to somebody."

Brian Sewell in The Observer.
Fagburn notes with some delight that Private Eye now calls him "Brian R Sewell".
