She says ‘My favourite was Two Old Women Birdwatching in My Garden, which just made me happy. In fact, many of the stories made me smile. And many of them just left me kind of stunned. I kept wanting to tweet @nikperring with “Your book is amazing.” ‘ which makes me happy, of course.
And I’ve been taking things easy over the past few days. Recharging a bit, getting back to reading and writing. Thinking about new projects and what’s next for me and, interestingly (but perhaps not so healthily) wondering where exactly I (or my work) fit into the literary/short story scene – I’m not too sure.
I’ve also watched a couple of films. 2001 – A Space Odyssey, and An Education. I loved the 2001 book when I read it and thought the film was superb. And An Education was just brilliant – I really loved it (and not only because the delightful and, of course, talented Carey Mulligan was in it). I’d highly recommend it – touching, great fun and real.
