I’ve been doing some editing and consultancy work and generally getting things back under control over the last two weeks. But I’ve also been getting back into the writing routine. On Friday I had a piece on the Guardian Books blog about James Agee and Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, his account of life among the sharecroppers in 1930s Alabama. And I have some exciting things coming up. It won’t be long before the publicity work for Cain’s: The Story of Liverpool in a Pint begins to kick in, but in the mean time the Key Ideas book needs finishing off, I’m going to be working on articles for 100 American Crime Writers, and teaching a couple of hours a week.
I’m excited about what we have planned over on The Reader Online, which is gathering momentum nicely. This week we have another featured poetry anthology from Bloodaxe, entitled Earth Shattering. These poems are a great way to start the day.
