Edinburgh is go!


The totally excellent Edinburgh International Book Festival just launched its thirtieth programme this morning. I couldn’t go to the launch, had to go to my daughter’s primary one induction. That’s me all over – writer? Dad? Juggle, juggle. La-dee-da.

Aaaanyway, great programme as always. Check it all out here. I’m thrilled to be appearing on Thursday 15th August with none other than Laura Lippman – wowzer!

One thing I noticed from the programme is that they’re working Ian Rankin hard, aren’t they? As well as two of his own events he’s interviewing Peter Hook, Tim Burgess, Margaret Atwood and Maj Sjowall, as well as taking part in a celebration of Iain Banks’s life and work. Which I’m gutted I’m going to miss, cos I’m going to be in Australia (more of which in another blog).

Anyhoo, hopefully see y’all in Charlotte Square!
