The Unsung Letter No 22

I immediately fell in love with the novella and Gurba’s narrator Desiree Garcia when I read it earlier this year. I devoured most of the book whilst waiting for a flight and during the subsequent airplane journey itself – actually the perfect place to absorb this novel which has a main character grappling with all the things going on inside her head as well as around her. 

Read more – subscribe to The Unsung Letter, a weekly missive on an underhyped book, sung to the rafters by a different writer/critic/book pusher each time. This week it’s New Zealander Andrea Quinlan.

 

Just a quick one this week  – I’m off to Leeds to read at Blackwells with three other debut novelists. Also – yesterday the Edinburgh International Book Festival catalogue was released: check out who is in it! Tickets go on sale next Tuesday, and a link will be here then.

Flesh of the Peach Launch Party

Edinburgh and Edinburgh-adjacent folk (and anyone further afield who would like to come to this): Flesh of the Peach is getting its launch TONIGHT at Blackwell’s South Bridge, starting from 6.30pm. Jenny Brown will be chairing the event. There will be free wine and sweet things, and tickets are utterly free. I’ll be talking about the book itself, my journey across the US, and all sorts on the writing and publishing processes, and of course signing books. I would love it if lots of you could come.

 

Here’s the link to book (free!) tickets, or just simply rock up at 6ish. Say hello!
