So I was asked to chair a panel event a couple of months ago, which was terrifying but also awesome. It was in Waterstones Piccadilly and it was on the subject of identity in literature. On the panel were three pretty awesome authors: Vu Tran, Leye Adenle and Frances Mensah Williams.
But that’s not what I’m here to talk about.
I’m here to talk about how Ion Mills, m.d. of Oldcastle Books (who publishes Vu Tran), read my blog and discovered my pure and never-ending love of Chet Faker (now Nick Murphy – dunno how I feel about that). Turns out Ion’s daughter, Sinead, DOES CHET’S – sorry Nick’s – MUTHAFUCKING PR AND GOT ME TICKETS TO SEE HIS SOLD OUT SHOW AT BRIXTON ACADEMY.
It was awesome and I took some truly awful photos.
Yeah, that’s all I really have to say about that. Just thought I should let y’all know of this fortuitous event in my life.
