Tomorrow at some unfeasibly early hour I’ll begin my journey back to Scotland for the Edinburgh Festivals. This Friday, the 19th, I’ll be appearing with Kate Tough in Word Power Books at 1pm, where we’ll both be talking about our forthcoming poetry pamphlets on Tapsalteerie. The week after, on the 25th, I’ll be appearing with Glenn Patterson in the Edinburgh International Book Festival at 3.45pm. Hopefully I’ll see you at one or both of these events.
My latest piece for the Japan Times was in Sunday’s paper and is online now. It’s a look at one of Yukio Mishima’s more unsettling (and that’s saying something) novels, Forbidden Colours. You can read all about it here.
