I\’ve just come back from talking to Flushing Sailing Club about my books – mainly the Carey novels. Here\’s a picture of some of the audience, after a few pints.
All right – quite a few had already left by the time I remembered to get a picture and they\’d had a good laugh, believe me.
Yes, I do it wearing my lovely purple corset. And?
(This is a picture of me doing my talk. I don\’t think I normally look this hideous. Honest.) It makes sense when you know what my poetry is like – buy \”The Poetry Diet\” to find out.
Actually they were all really friendly and asked some highly expert questions about Elizabethans, the Borders and chocoholism.
I personally blame the fact that I\’ve been writing the latest Sir Robert Carey book (no title yet) and am eating industrial quantities of chocolate and patisserie.
