Alan Warner, heard over echoes

My first post from the Book Festival is now up at Genotype: an account of a reading and discussion by Alan Warner of his forthcoming book, The Dead Man's Pedal.

I've just started reading his first book, Morvern Callar, after years of enthusiastic recommendations by informed friends. I wish I'd taken their advice earlier - the book is amazing.

I don't know if you've ever met him. But he's really funny in real life too.

Yes, I've met him and he is!

I finally got around to reading Morvern Callar on this recommendation. I'm not sure why it is so memorable days later - I need to think about it more! Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Good to know, Adam! Now I've got to read it myself ...
