Default Happy Birthday, wshaw!

Many blissfully happy returns, sir.

(And here's hoping today's interviewees are co-operative and giving, and full of entertaining, wildly indiscreet revelations - even Nick Laird).

Whatever - enjoy!

Can't help but read your name without thinking "Pshaw" a la C19th disparaging snort. Nevertheless I hope you have a truly fab day.

DANGNABIT! Missed all these birthday greetings until today.

That'll learn me not to log into Palimp more regularly. But I did feel warm feelings for most of the day, so I must have got the emanations. Thank you all.

JS - you'll be thrilled to hear that Ronan Bennett and Nick Laird was cancelled at the last minute due to lack of ticket sales. While this is might have something to do with that Nick Laird voodoo doll you've got stuffed with pins at home, JS, it's a bit of a shame when it comes to the great Roman Bennett. I was looking forward to that.

Brighton basically does a lot of arty stuff but really doesn't appear to actually read much. Or it doesn't think much of fiction authors reading. I had about 400 in for Mark Haddon last year and yet there were only about a dozen in for David Mitchell and Trezza Azzopardi. And Fergal Keane was packed with tweedy-looking types.

Unsurprisingly there are still many tickets going this event which I put together and stand to lose somene else's shirt on:
