Sunday, January 29th 2006 : "Reading for Shetland"
Yesterday, just in time for a long train journey and even longer ferry trip, I received a proof copy of Dominique Manotti's DEAD HORSEMEAT. She's one of the European authors who will be at the Lit and Phil library in Newcastle on Thursday April 6th. I read her first novel ROUGH TRADE a while ago and found it edgy and disturbing - an image of the Paris tourists never see and specially relevant following the riots there last year. At the same event will be Gianrico Carofiglio, who charmed the Harrogate Crime Writing Festival last year and a Finnish author I've never read - Matti Joensuu. I'm thrilled to be chairing the evening and look forward to meeting lots of old friends there.
Also yesterday, a nice review of RAVEN BLACK by Marcel Berlins in The Times. Hurrah.
