South by Sarf West to the magnificent 1930s redbrick palace of literacy that is Surbiton Library. Staffed b a crack team of ridiculously friendly librarians (see below) I arrived with ten minutes to spare to find an enourmous audience waiting for me. Very gratifying.
Fortified with nothing but coffee and cake I was put to the question for a whole hour before signing some books.
And then onward by taxi to Brixton....
Brixton glorious Brixton - not the gateway to anywhere because once you've reached Brixton you never want to go anywhere else.
As soon as I walked in I was ambushed by the media in the form of Vanessa Bafoe from London Live who interviewed me live on air - fortunately I managednot to swear and to promote Cityreads without screaming or making a fool of mysef.
|Pronounced BAF-FO - very important that.|
|They keep putting my audience in....|
|....a horsehoe shape which makes it hard to get them all in one picture.|

Next stop - BALHAM - getway to the South!
