The Biographer’s Moustache has some splendid and wholly characteristic scenes and observations. There remained the question of his moustache. ALLAN MASSIE, The Scotsman. It was on his face now for a mixture of reasons, starting chronologically with dissatisfaction or boredom with his own unadorned looks as seen reflected in mirrors and such.

Then he, Gordon, had remembered being secretly rather taken by how he had looked with just such a pencilled-in facial addition in a newspaper photograph.
