Edinburgh Review 135 Launch

After a brilliant two weeks on the road, spun between the Wilderness Festival on one end and the Uncivilisation festival on the other — thanks to the organisers of both for such spectacular events — it’s good to be back in Edinburgh. Plenty going on: such as the Edinburgh International Book Fair, at which Carlos Gamerro and László Krasznahorkai gave stirring, thought-provoking readings last night, the Festival of Politics all weekend long, and this Friday night, the launch of the new Edinburgh Review at Word Power Books. I’m honored to be reading alongside Patience Agbabi and Brian McCabe; if you’re in the area, do stop by for some new poetry — and failing that, of course, a glass of wine.

Reading starts at 7; details are here.
