One of my favourite blogs, Ellis Sharp's The Sharp Side has sadly given up the ghost. Yesterday, Ellis closed down his blog with these words: "The Sharp Side terminates here. Farewell."

Ellis had a vibrant and pungent voice and I'll miss his blog. He was always an attentive reader: his recent post on The 5Oth anniversary of Malcolm Lowry’s death being a case in point.

I wonder why he has decided to stop blogging?

  1. If my own feelings are anything to by, a blog reaches a certain point and then becomes a burden rather than a release. And he's got other things to write of course.

    Either that or he's emigrating to Israel.
