19 January 2016

I am very excited indeed to be flying to Denver, Colorado, for the first time this coming Sunday, 24 January, to attend the American Booksellers’ Association Winter Institute in advance of the US publication of The Versions of Us on 3 May 2016.

Having discovered the late Colorado-based author Kent Haruf last year, I’m really interested to see the state that inspired his gorgeous, precise, emotive prose (I’ve stored up two of his novels to take with me!). And, of course, I’m hugely looking forward to meeting some of the many brilliant independent booksellers that underpin American literary culture… Also, I hear the hotel has a rooftop pool – so really, what’s not to love?

If you happen to be there too, do come and say hello, and grab a proof copy of the (very beautiful) US edition 🙂
