The lovely Ryan van Winkle and I had a long chat about poetry, the Interweb, suicide and so on… and there will be a BBC Radio Cafe special at the beginning of April where I’m chatting with Janice Galloway, Rupert Thomson and William Fiennes of the ethics and aesthetics of the memoir. Or the “themoir” as it probably should be called. Link anon. Off to prepare for chairing Vitali Vitaliev, then Bryan Talbot and Denise Mina.

And in other good news, Rana Dasgupta’s Solo has won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize. It’s always comforting when prize judges agree with the critics.
