CrimeFicReader (of It’s a Crime!) has been writing some wonderful posts about the Hay festival, full of her usual wit, insight and knowledge. She’s excelled herself at the link above, though — I have to admit that I am strongly predisposed to the subject matter, Neil Pearson, but even if you are misguided enough not to be an admirer of this courteous, funny and extremely handsome gentleman, it’s a fascinating post about Pearson in his guise as Not Martin Amis, a book collector and the author of a book about Jack Kahane and his Obelisk press (the book includes a bibliography of the books, or "smut", that was published ).
CrimeFicReader’s two earlier posts about the Hay festival can be read here (part 1) and here (part 2). As she’s mentioned in an earlier post, she’s had some difficult times recently, which makes these wonderful accounts all the more admirable. Thanks, CrimeFicReader!
