Looking forward to Ali Smith’s new novel, There but for the, due on the 2nd of June. Loved The Accidental.
This is a year of re-reads for me – am enjoying Lydia Davis’s translation of Madame Bovary. I almost never find time for re-reads, but this year I’m almost tempted to let re-reads dominate as it’s good to return to the books you’ve loved enough to keep on your shelves as favourites.
There’s a new Kate Bush album (sort of) to look forward to, Director’s Cut . I’m not sure yet about the single, Deeper Understanding, but some of the previews sound intriguing. Apparently there is a ‘proper’ album on the boil and scheduled – very tentatively – for either later this year or sometime next year.
A few nice things – a story highly commended in the Inktears competition and a poem published in the very nicely-produced The Cathach, the link to The Cathach is here
