First Love...


I found this on Twitter the other night, a list of books by Ian McEwan from the front of an Ian McEwan novel that reads like a poem in its own right. Accidental poetry.

Not really connected at all but the pick of Steve Cobby's 2015 Everliving album for me was Teleseme, a gorgeous, building, string laden tune that sent the listener ever upwards. Last July a remix by Hallo Halo was released which oriented it towards the dancefloor with a hypnotic, springy bassline. Hallo Halo are the legendary Jon da Silva and Jonas Nilsson. Eight minutes of fun.

Yes it could Michael.

One of my tutors at the University of Sussex told me he used to look at students' creative writing if they asked him to, and most of it was pretty mediocre. One student, however, submitted stories so vile, on such repellant subjects, that he strongly recommended he give up altogether. The punchline here is obviously that that student was Ian McEwan...
