Just finished -- and absolutely LOVED -- "Who Is Conrad Hirst?" Excellent story and characters. Loved your way through the narrative with the voice changes, and that there wasn't a wasted word in the entire book. Thank you!
Vincent, I have to say, the biggest single complaint everyone keeps making is not about the flood waters (which we're used to, if not quite at this level), but the constant buzz of helicopters, most of which are full of news crews.
Thanks for introducing me to the fabulous Ms Barclay and what Germain Greer would call her 'f*ck-me pumps'. What a woman! I fear my marriage may now be in serious danger. Or, at least, it would be if Ms Barclay - alias Mrs (I think??) Williams - showed any signs of wanting to endanger hers ...
I read somewhere that you made it back okay, though from watching the news this morning it looks as if the water problems in your part of the world are being surpassed by a spontaneous flood of journalists.
