That London Reading

I was supposed to be going to Prague next week, wiv' the hub, but family commitments mean going to France to a funeral instead. I'll be helping to lay to rest the last direct French connection we have: a Gran-aunt, who was just six months shy of her 100th birthday. She slipped away quietly ... always a very modest and unassuming, but hugely supportive person.

But I'm still up for the end of month reading in London, at the Oxfam Bookshop, Marylebone. Details as follows:

Sad about your Gran-aunt, but what an age.

I hope all goes well for your reading - I wish for mega good fortune to come hear you, alas, more chance of getting a settee.

I hear you Rachel, thanks for your warm thoughts. Don't knock the sofa idea, though ...
