Great news. I loved Slaves of New York. Was it really published 20 years ago? That makes me feel olllld.

Well done. She's a proper author.

Wow - I'm impressed. I remember when Slaves of New York first appeared. How exciting. Reading Oliver James' Affluenza at the mo - so the bit about society eaten away through commercialism rings lots of bells.


what does editor in this case mean? - does this mean that you will get early drafts and provide editoral insights! If so how does this work with publishing in other markets with other publishers ie what does her american editor do?

Small world - in our shop only a few yards from your door Scott, we used to sell piles of her stuff as remainders; I didn't think anyone else knew how good it all was.

And the boyfriend of the photographer who did the jackets was quite a regular too. if you are reading this Mike, get in touch...

Then TFL shut us down and split us all up. Thats what they're there for of course , to keep people apart.

I'm not bitter, I got to spend the past year bringing up my son.



I don't know why but the word 'gimmick' comes to mind.

Rachel Worth's friend - I am delighted to say that I am editing the book with Tama as The Friday Project has world rights. If anyone else wants to publish it they have to come to us. At the moment we are looking at a series of logos or icons to use on the page when certain characters take the fore. There are also a number of images that Tama wants to incorporate into the text and we are finding the best way of doing that.

Bela - Of course it is a gimmick. And hopefully a nice collectible one.

Never read 'Slaves' - but did enjoy 'The Male Cross Dresser's Support Group' (the book, that is not the therapy).Presumably I should scuttle off and read 'Slaves...' forthwith..?

Friends Of Rachel Worth is for my money one of the best Go-Betweens lps too.

I remember taking a film crew into a bad-taste New York restaurant one night to interview a con artist and Bret Easton Ellis. There at the table was this woman with long jellyfish-like hair. (Now, you'd call her a cross between Amy Winehouse and Nicola Six.) Anyway, through the fetching uncomfortableness of her shyness was this attractive and tactile shyness, which meant the next day I simply read one of her books. I was not disappointed.

Slaves of New York is great. Looking forward to this, gimmick or not.

One You May Have Missed

  • Ian Holding: Unfeeling

    Ian Holding: Unfeeling
    Unforgettable novel told from the point of view of the son of a white Zimbabwean farmer whose land is reclaimed by an armed mob. I thought it was an oustanding debut and am surprised the author didn't go on to bigger and better things.

Big Mouth at the Movies

  • : Guardians of the Galaxy

    Guardians of the Galaxy
    Good fun, I thought. Not the best film in the world but a cut above the usual superhero stuff. (****)

  • : The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya

    The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya
    Unlike any animation I have seen. Quite stunning. (****)

  • : The Killer Inside Me

    The Killer Inside Me
    Odd movie. Doesn't really work. (***)

  • : Gone Girl

    Gone Girl
    Pretty good, I thought, but not amazing. I had already read the book so perhaps the lack of surprise hindered things a bit. (***)

  • : The Lunchbox

    The Lunchbox
    An absolute delight. Beautifully acted. Loved this. (****)

  • : Atomised

    So much better than the book. (****)

  • : 20,000 Days on Earth

    20,000 Days on Earth
    Watched this for a second time. Just as good. (****)

  • : Le Mepris

    Le Mepris
    Brigitte Bardot, Jack Palance, Michel Piccoli and Fritz Lang star in a beautifully shot but terribly pretentious movie. Palance is awful throughout. (**)

  • : Labor Day

    Labor Day
    Was this a box office flop? I think it might have been. Shame, it was very good. (****)
