A European Theatre Festival and a major book launch on the same night! Hell’s teeth it was cultural overload in Brum last night.
Catherine O’Flynn’s second novel was launched at the Ikon. I’ve read it and can certainly recommend it but will let Fay Weldon tell you about it as I agree with her and she writes more beautifully that I.
It has been launched in the ‘trade paperback’ format, so you may wish to wait until the true paperback comes out. I can’t understand why they don’t just call this format a firmback book, surely it would be a more transparent term which would sit more obviously between the Hardback and paper or Softback categories.
