During my trip to Stockholm I immersed myself in what Patrick Wilmot* depicts so well in the novel "Seeing Double"; Shopping!
I found a pair of unlined driving gloves, perfect for those summernight cruises on my scooter. An extra bonus is that they match my new, rudely soft motorcycle jacket by Massimo Dutti.

Patrick Wilmot
Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Patrick Wilmot obtained a bachelor's degree from Yale and later an MA and Ph.D in philosophy from Vanderbilt, all in the United States. He taught sociology at Ahmadu Bello University, Nigeria for 18 years. In 1988, the military government of Ibrahim Babangida deported him from the country for taking more than a passing interest in the way the country was being (mis) ruled by the military despite the fact that he has a Nigerian wife. Patrick has written more than 10 books including In Search of Nationhood (Lantern Books); Sociology: a New Introduction (Collins), and Apartheid and African Liberation (Ife University Press). Patrick now lives in London assessing manuscripts for the African writers series and the Caribbean writers series published by Heinemann. He is a member of council of the African Centre, London and Transparency International.
