Lovely ....and do hope you feel much better soon! Miserable to be Ill during Boomfest! X


I hope you feel better very soon Karen.


More like myself today, thanks, Adele, but vexed I've missed some good events!


Thank you, Freda, a little light blog-reading and Instagram-viewing have been cheering and diverting while other things have been beyond me, but I'm sure I'm on the mend.


Sorry to hear you've been ill. That image of the marvellous C T should be a tonic. What a face and what a writer!! As they say, I could listen to him read the phone book, or better still extemporise on it.


Hope you're feeling much better now. I do hope the CT lecture was not one that you had to miss. I was there and he was entertaining, eloquent and obviously has a huge brain. Chaired by Hermione Lee so win, win! I went to her lecture the following day and could have listened to her for another hour or more. She was so easy and informative. I have Anne Enright and Pat Barker tickets this weekend. How lucky we are to have all this in Edinburgh.

This book sounds wonderful. I will try to locate a copy. I hope you feel better and can attend some of the festival. Edinburgh is one of my favorite cities.


Dear Cornflower, sorry to hear you have been under the weather. May I ask.....have you posted anything on the brilliant Elena Ferrante books...? Just received, in the mail from Amazon, the fourth book.....the first three so, so, so good, what do you think?
