That's it! Scarlet Stilettos are on at the end of this month - come along. Just read your review and love it - cant' find the darned book anywhere so I hope they'll sell them on the night. I could meet you part way and drive you if you like. Are you in the Dandenongs?
I hope you'll enjoy Japrisot. We have several movies made after his novels here in France, including an excellent L'Ete meurtrier (A murderous summer?)
Let me know how you liked his novels once you have read one of them.
Hi Karen: Some interesting comments from you on the Melbourne Writers' Festival - although your blog cuts off the left hand side of your posts for the first sdeveral paragraphs. I note your slight reservation about the move from the Malthouse. What think you? Fed Square doesn't offer any of the smaller venues such as the Tower or the Bagging Room and it will take more than usually attend sessions to fill BMW Edge. But where else is there unless they divide Zinc into smaller meeting rooms - and there the seating is not sloped and we'll be craning around the heads of those in front to see the stage?
At this rate, the Antarctic will be tropical soon. Sorry about the drought -- we seem to be entering one here, though of much shorter duration (I hope). All the beautiful autumn foliage is already turning brown and falling from the trees.
Thanks for the name Danuta Reah, by the way - will have to check those books out.
