I did a long-form interview with Simon Akam for the podcast Always Take Notes. I am a little under-caffeinated (not a bad thing, perhaps), but it was a welcome chance to answer questions at a greater length than writers are normally given. The podcast also features interviews with, among many others, Candice Carty-Wlliams, Peter Frankopan, Hermione Lee, Nikesh Shukla and Iasn Rankin. You can find it here: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/always-take-notes/id1224996246?mt=2

These were taken by Charles Moriarty whose fantastic work you can see here: http://charlesmoriartyphotography.com where you will also find details of his recently published book of photos of Amy Winehouse early in her career, Back to Amy. If you want to use the photos, get in touch with Fran or Sophie at Vintage:  mitchellowen@penguinrandomhouse.co.uk

On 30th November I gave a talk "The Other Side" for 5x15 at the Conway Hall alongside talks by Sarah Perry, Sophie Hannah, Andrew Michael Hurley and Richard MacLean Smith (and some beautiful solo violin from Sarah Daramy Williams which is, shamefully, not available here): https://soundcloud.com/search?q=5x15%20Halloween

The Porpoise will be published by Chatto & Windus in the UK in May 2018 and by Double6day in the US in June 2019. “‘I really am so very, very sorry about this,’ he says, in an oddly formal voice… They strike the side of a grain silo. They are travelling at seventy miles per hour…”


The Porpoise


The cover art – which I like a lot - is by David Cass. You can see more of his work here:
