Brieven uit Londen - Dutch translation

I am really pleased that the Dutch translation of Pictures at an Exhibition, Brieven uit Londen (Letters from London) is now out! It has a great cover, as I'm sure you'll all agree.  If you know anyone Dutch - let them know!

Clan Macpherson: Catch not a cat....

Many thanks to the Clan Macpherson Association for its loyal support of Pictures at an Exhibition. There was a wonderful turn-out of Macphersons at my book launch last year at Waterstone's Leadenhall Market, and the annual magazine, Creag Dubh, contains a photo of me signing copies as well as a review.

Living the letters for real

I met up with Carly Butler today, a Canadian in London researching her grandmother's war-time story through the letters she sent during that time and planning a book about the experience. I read about her adventure in the paper and couldn't believe someone was following just the kind of war-time/letter journey for real that I imagined when I wrote Pictures at an Exhibition! What a brilliant adventure she is having. Here is a picture of us at the National Gallery in the shop where I was also pleased to discover that the copy of Pictures at an Exhibition that Carly bought was my third sale of the day.
