I am looking forward to the Birmingham launch of the Bugged book tomorrow. The event takes place at the wonderful Ikon Gallery as part of Birmingham Book Festival. I’ll be reading my Bugged poem and shmoozing about. It also offers me chance to catch up with a friend I just don’t see enough of, and return a book I borrowed aeons ago.
Here is the Bugged blurb:
‘Bugged brings together well-known names like Stuart Maconie with new and emerging writers like Jenn Ashworth and Susie Wild. The idea was simple: on a single summer day, writers all over the UK joined in a mass eavesdropping experiment – and wrote from what they heard. The results were funny, touching, sinister or uplifting. This is a brilliant new anthology of the best in British writing.’
