To Brighton last night to attend the launch party for Susanna Jones’ new book, The Missing Person’s Guide to Love. The bash was held at a bar/restaurant called The Terraces, overlooking a wild and choppy English Channel. Lots of local writers, journalists and film-makers who were all very friendly, and a contingent of students from the MA course Susanna teaches on in London. Susanna’s agent, Bill Hamilton, told me the book was intelligent and demanding – the reader has to really pay attention. I can’t wait to read it. In fact, I really can’t wait to read it – I started it as soon as I got home last night. A full review will follow . . .
