I’m sorry that this month got off to such a slow start. That was me. I have two books coming out in the next couple of weeks and find myself easily distracted. Both of them are visible on the internet now. One is my next novel, which I like to call my Sydney feminist Jewish magic novel (The Wizardry of Jewish Women) and the other is a non-fiction book about the relationship between history and fiction writers. I’ll do you a post for each of them when they’re safely launched into the big world. Until then, I have some delightful guests for you to meet.
This year I have fewer guests, but I’ve asked them to write substantial and possibly somewhat personal posts. We’re looking at the lives and work of writers from a number of directions. I’ll give you a full explanation at the end of the month but, for now, I’d like the essays to stand by themselves.
