A Feast of Tongues here. Aunt Dorothea is writing once again about grief, donkeys and swimming pools! I was inspired by the Raymond Carveresque photo by Dominic Goodman and a recent venture into Marina Warner's Signs and Wonders. I came across her years ago when she gave the Reith Lectures Managing Monsters. In A Feast of Tongues, I was thinking about Aesop, fables and all that they can be.
In other news (in between sick children, non-writing work and the shenanigans of everyday life) I am back writing my detective books. So will dip into Raymond Chandler, San Antonio, Fred Vargas and maybe some George Perec (the latter for something unpredictable and wild).
