Anakana Schofield – Award Winning Author of Bina, Martin John and Malarky

Goodnight Mr V.

For those of you reflecting or saying bon soir there’s some great columns he wrote here. Also The New York Times have collected some of his articles in one useful spot

 Was wandering along the road reading the introduction to his essay collection today and chortling, when a woman passing said “he’s very dead” which provided me with a good solution to my usual emotive whittering along the injustice of writers I like not being immortal. One could just as easily insist he’s not dead. “Not at all, I’ve just seen him,” I could have called back. Immediately felt better about the fact he is. The long pause between books would give sufficient time for necessary acceptance. This 24 hour news culture means we are getting news so rapidly, far too rapidly, before we’re ready for it.  In anycase in that introduction … he’s hilariously alive. Look it up. Mustily must, mustily must.
