Jon McGregor was a speaker whose talk I attended at Greenbelt. Afterwards, I went to the bookstore and bought his book, which he then signed. I told him I would talk about it on the site when I started reading it. I have no idea if he’s even been to the site or (and certainly not this one) had the patience to see if I would ever start reading it. Well, it’s very next in the queue; I hope to start it in the next day or two; and this review has very much wet my appetite.
He didn’t make the short list for the Booker Prize, but that long list isn’t very long, now is it?
