Having been utterly crap at maintaining this blog over the last few months, it's now my duty to inform you (if there is any 'you' out there) that my new book is published this week.
What else can I tell you?
It's called "The Heritage" (though originally it was called something else).
As you can see it has a rather marvellous cover courtesy of Alex Kirby at Faber.
As far as I know there haven't been many reviews of it yet but Marianne Brace wrote a very nice piece for the Independent a couple of weeks ago.
I'm on Radio 5 Live with Simon Mayo on Thursday afternoon along with Anne Enright (the fear, the fear) and on the Verb on Radio 3 on Friday night, where a genuine actor will be reading a new short story by me (links to follow when I have them and if it's not too humiliating...).
Let me see... Oh yes, it's half price at Amazon but I hope is available elsewhere, too.
Anyway, I guess that's it for now. More news to follow, as long as I can remember my password this time...
