This is why we should think twice about putting books back on tv.

I am currently reading The Shining, my fourth SK book in four decades and reckon it's probably about as good as he gets.

Ta. I'll probably be on a train by that point, was hoping we might capture it live while we were recording the podcast.

We will be talking about ghoulies and ghosties and long-legged beasties and things that go bump in the night. But mainly we'll be talking about the elegant and disturbing supernatural stories of Edith Wharton.

Note: Ghosts (1937) was Wharton's own selection of her supernatural stories (see below). It is long out of print. If you are reading along at home you need both the Virago and Wordsworth editions of The Ghost Stories of Edith Wharton to gather them all together.

Back in 1990 or something I remember reading that The Mezzanine by Nich*lson Baker, a wonderful, well-reviewed debut novel which had been all over newspapers, radio and TV and was the hit of the season, had sold 3000 copies in the UK in hardback and that was considered a result.

Scott's sketch is a fair one - the winner sells, the others less so. We used to get the six shortlisted titles in when they were announced and watch them sit there for a month.

On reflection, you should also read Francis Plug: How To Be A Public Author if you didn't enjoy the Booker documentary or it made you (i.e. me) feel a bit like this.

After a bad experience with Louis MacNeice at school, I was nervous ... but it was wonderful. And way too contemporary. Thank god for Francis Plug.

Walking home, listening to the latest , as read the final verses of Louis MacNeice’s Autumn Journal, I stopped dead still in the street, passers by passing by, my mind flooding and drenched with those extraordinary brave and beautiful words.
