Update to last post, plus NY writers' reading

Alternatively you can click here. You get all the text but, alas, no author photograph...

Just back from a very interesting evening listening to four New York writers from the New School MFA programme in Fiction Writing at Rome's John Cabot University. I'll have more to say about this when I find a moment, but it's unusual, for me at least, to find listening to prose being read aloud so enjoyable. I love to hear poetry, but there's something about fiction that I think needs the silent page, and the innumerable nuances of attention the reader brings to it. Anyway, I was proved wrong tonight. More about this in the next day or so.

I'm wondering if I should try listening to prose through a smartphone now.
