Subject: Jimmy Homosapien
James's interest in mattress pressing politics, his Gentlemen of the
Bedchamber, his boyfriends and the political ramifications thereof are
touched upon in a new life ("The Cradle King: A Life of James VI and I"
by Alan Stewart - Chatto and Windus). Coincidentally, the political and
social maelstrom arising from the interaction between two other monarchs
who, like Jimmy, were deeply entangled by and with curious men - his
mummy and Elizabeth - are covered in a new study ("Elizabeth and Mary:
Cousins, Rivals, Queens" by Jane Dunn - HarperCollins).
Almost a thousand pages and forty quid the pair if some peripheral
reading is your delight.
