I’m currently reading the enthralling Her Kind by Niamh Boyce (Penguin: London, 2019) and looking forward to welcoming Niamh to my Writers’ Chat series shortly.
Meanwhile I received wonderful book post this week:
- James Baldwin If Beale Street Could Talk
- Hiro Arikawa The Travelling Cat
- Mario Levrero Empty Words
- Sinéad Gleeson Constellations
The hardest task will be which book to dive into first – – the choice of creative non-fiction essays (ones which beg to be savoured), the mind of a cat (the pull of life, there), urban scape (and that wonderful way Baldwin has with words), handwriting & notebooks (rather close to the bone). And I think, then, about the privilege of choice and wonder if I should write for a while.

Mmm the dilemma between reading and writing! It’s good to have choices.
Thanks for the comment, Maria. I agree – it’s so great to have choices.
