a little news
Upcoming this month: reviews in the TLS (Ottessa Moshfegh’s blackly comic meta-mystery Death in Her Hands) and the Guardian (Stuart Turton’s maritime gothic detective romp The Devil and the Dark Water); an appearance on Henry Rothwell’s fascinating Grave Goods, in which I claim I would be happy to walk sandstone heath for eternity, eating humous & pitta; in online conversation with Gary Budden under the auspices of the mighty Housmans bookshop; in online conversation with La Enriquez for FILBA 2020. I updated this. Sure, the 1970s were fun, but for those who prefer to know what I’m writing now, “Doe Lea” is still free to read at Granta.
& here’s a super-short story I wrote for twitter: “George has been known since 1949 for his fascinating stories of rats eating peoples’ faces, so it seems odd to talk about any other concern he might have.”
