Stuff (New Zealand) reports on the debut novel by television writer David Wolstencraft this week. The creator of the popular show “Spooks” (known as “MI-5” in the U.S.) has written a novel about – what else – espionage, titled Good News, Bad News. The story apparently centers on two agents, who are ordered, “apparently by bureaucratic error, to work together in the same photo booth in a London Underground station.” Now, I assume the writer means one of the hundreds of photobooths foundin Tube stations all over London, but what kind of work are two people going to do inside a photobooth? Guess I’ll have to read to novel.
