Just had a bit of a shock...

One of my greatest heroes is Clive Stafford Smith. I have just been listening to his Desert Island Discs interview from 2004. I was amazed that he wanted to take the Quran with him as his book.

Throughout my forty years long night under the crescent the one great niggling doubt I had was over the death penalty. It was for me the great inconsistency in the doctrine of Islam that I was never able to resolve or rationalise. And now this guy, my great hero, comes along and says he wants to take the Quran with him to his desert island. My flabber has never been so gasted.

Maybe, for whatever reason, he considers the Quran to be a worthy work of fiction? That Allah is sure a hoot!

Then I suggest he takes the latest version (sorry, Allah has been dropped)...
