Some pics.

  • This is from the launch party. Okay, I'm the one holding his mouth all funny. Next to me on the right is my wife, Rachel. On the left, is my brother, Nigel. Next to him is a lady called Claire (or Clare), who told me she was the reader who recommended my book for publication. Thanks to Ewa from MNW for the picture.

  • Also from the launch party. This is me signing a copy of Taking Comfort for Sam Grosser, author of Another Time and Place, which will be published by Macmillan New Writing in November. Nigel again, looking on. Thanks to Sam for sending me the picture.

  • The book in the window of Crouch End's favourite bookshop, Prospero's Books.

  • The window display at the Pan Bookshop, Fulham Road.

  • Me and Cate Sweeney, author of Selfish Jean, in front of the Pan Bookshop window. We're about to do our first ever public reading, which may explain why we look so nervous, not to say terrified.

    What a nice bunch of people drinking wine in a bookstore. I'd buy books from you all, certainly. Hey--I have that Alice Munro book. I'll be ordering Taking Comfort very soon now. Congratulations!
