Prospect magazine honours Arcati

Madame Arcati is most flattered to arouse the cerebral curiosity of Prospect magazine (February edition - follow this link).

While to quote from the item might be viewed as a form of auto-eroticism, I can’t imagine that I am "causing consternation in celebrityland for [my] well-informed indiscretions." My real identity is the matter of some speculation, it reports, but it doesn’t occur to the publication that Madame Arcati could quite possibly have slipped into this world in the usual fashion - placental moist and bawling - with her name etched on her forehead. Admittedly, Madame is an odd first name but we all have our cross to bear.

Writer Duncan Fallowell – see his interview below – is quoted as saying that "[Arcati] is great fun, sort of the News of the World getting off with the TLS at a drag ball." Kindness of this order is such a rare thing …

[well-informed indiscretions]

And slanderous assumptions, quite often too.

Arcati is obviously Duncan Fallowell, Susan Hill and the Kevin Spacey Fan Club (if any).

Personally I think Arcati is an agent provocateur for the Sunday Times. Think about it.

Self-congratulation, eh ? Ah, Arcati, this saddens me... You should resist the temptation, you know :-).
