I AM heading to Melbourne for the second time this year to see the Victoria and Albert Museum’s art deco collection at the National Gallery of Victoria. I have one day. I arrive on the afternoon of Monday, September 15. I’ll be there all day Tuesday and fly back Wednesday morning. I have checked the programs and the only tour, talk or live event that coincides with when I’m there is a talk on Shanghai in the 1930s. I’ll take it. Has you seen the film adaptation of Somerset Maugham’s The Painted Veil? I am going to read the book in readiness. If anyone else knows of anything else I can squeeze into a flying visit let me know. Brown Owls is on the Monday. Eeek, can I do it? How does one get to Brown Owls HQ from the city?
