    How interesting that Garner and Turing were friends. Alan Garner wrote one of my very favourite novels, The Owl Service, which is usually billed as a children’s book but is so dense with layers of symbolism and illusion that I doubt anyone under the age of 30 has ever really understood it in full. (Or anyone over thirty either, for that matter.) A short book, but an incredibly dense one. I highly recommend it.
