Weekend read: The professor and the bikini model

This can’t really be called an original suggestion for a Weekend Read: earlier in the year, this fantastic New York Times article was being recommended across the internet. But nevertheless, Maxine Swann’s bathetic and somehow familiar tale of a socially naive university professor seduced into – intentionally or otherwise – smuggling two kilos of cocaine into Bolivia is well worth a read.
