I started reading the first volume of Pilgrimage at the weekend, I am very taken with it, and it is lovely to know a little more of the background.

…. intrigued by a wide ranging discussion between crime writers Jessica Mann and Antonia Hodgson at the Exchange Gallery. It started with a discussion of the merit of contemporary versus historical crime fiction and moved on to consider much, much more.

I haven’t read much crime fiction at all this year, and I’d like to read a little more now.

It’s wonderful what you can do in a singly day off work in the middle of the week.

Thank you Penzance Literary Festival – and thank you Briar!

  1. So glad you’re enjoying Pilgrimage Jane – I loved the sequence when I read it many years ago!

  2. What a lovely way to spend a day. I have Dorothy Richardson downloaded to my Kindle but haven’t got around to reading yet.
    Briar looks exactly like my Charlie after a walk!
