“Reports of demise much exaggerated”

Ben,

Celebrating the rude health of the book business in the elegant and highly civilised surrounding of the migrated Maggs antiquarian operation in Bedford Square. Reports of demise much exaggerated. Author peddling tales of renegade days on market stalls as an appetiser for The Last London.

best,

“A good gathering of all ages and interests on the cusp of the electoral meltdown”

 

A snapshot from the end of the ‘Edgelands’ tour, last night in Cambridge. Nick Papadimitiou, walker, land-poet, author of Scarp, archivist, smiles alongside Cuifeng Ouyang, Associate Professor of Foreign Languages, and some freelance monologuist. A good gathering of all ages and interests on the cusp of the electoral meltdown. Strong and steady. Onwards and inwards.

best,

Iain
