At the risk of being very arrogant (surely not!) and reviewing my own gig, it was lovely to be the featured reader at Spoken Word last night. I gave a first outing to my South African poems from what I hope will be my next, next book, Quagga (sometime, maybe). I worried about just how much explanation to give, but some of the poems do need a bit of introduction. I usually err on the side of less is more in these matters, but not yesterday. I hope I got the balance right. Great evening and even I sold some books, which is always a pleasure.
