De-Cabbage Yourself! - Step 6
Just back from holiday – two fantastic weeks in Spain. Of course, the weather is miserable in Edinburgh and the pressure of work has already begun. However, my Cyclone virtual book tour in support of The Opposite of Cabbage continues. In fact, the latest step on the tour has been up at Bernardine Evaristo’s blog since Wednesday. You can read about why I began writing poetry, which writers have inspired me, the influence of other arts genres, and my times living abroad.
Incidentally, Bernardine Evaristo’s latest novel, Blonde Roots, in which ‘whytes’ from Europe are enslaved by ‘blak’ colonial masters from ‘Aphrika’ is a terrific read from beginning to end.
