Approaches primate shyly

In about a month I am doing a couple of talks at the Bath literary festival (memo to self: write some material). One of them is about — I suppose — feminist interpretations of hominid evolution. In any case, it has Elaine Morgan and Alison Jolly talking, and me refereeing. It cannot go worse than the last literary festival I did, at Hay on Wye, where I completely failed to control Tony Benn. After that session, I went off and caught trout in the Wye until I felt better. Rereading Jolly’s book, which I reviewed when it came out, and remembered with admiration and affection, I came across a nasty shock. She uses “meme” with a straight face. Oh dear. Still, there is much else to talk about.
