The World of Literature salutes Mandip and CurtCole!

Three cheers for CurtCole and Mandip!

I have now received my first (and possibly last) journalistic by-line in yesterday’s Guardian newspaper. My editor failed to tell me the publishing date had been brought forward but fortunately a friend let me know. At least you can get to see the article online and I will get my friends to let me have a paper copy.  

A special thanks to Curt Cole and Mandip who between them finally persuaded me to start a blog, which in turn gave me the courage to send a piece from this blog on spec to the Guardian. (The original article first apapeared on this blog on 24th October 2009). I promise to name-check them both when I receive the Nobel Prize for Literature.The Guardian
