The book that inspired me as a teenager…

‘Primo Levi’s The Wrench, although I’m not sure it inspired me in the right way. It’s about an itinerant rigger (an engineer who erects oil derricks and the like) who’s constantly on the move and loves and leaves. He’s a restless libertine and loner. I have finally – in my early 50s – had a child and got married. Enough said.’
