October 2008

October 29, 2008 by  

Resumed work on my novel ‘Rudi’ after several months working for Féile an Phobail.

Moderating the Bobby Sands Trust website which has just been redesigned and is being officially re-launched at a press conference on November 7th. As secretary of the Trust, dealing with enquiries and requests.

Reading:
‘The Master and Margarita’ by Mikhail Bulgakov – first half is excellent, very funny. Second half the pace has slowed down.
‘The Ox-Bow Incident’ by Walter Van Tilburg Clark – brilliant story about the lynching of three innocent cowboys. [Henry Fonda starred in the filmed version]
‘Inner Workings: Literary Essays 2000 – 2005’ by J.M.Coetzee – disappointing.

Almost finished ‘My Name is Red’ by Orhan Pamuk [translated by Erdağ Göknar]. Set in Istanbul in 1591 it is a love story and a murder mystery and revolves around the work of a group of miniaturists [an art form in the Ottoman Empire]. Earlier this year read ‘Snow’ by Pamuk.
