token girl: like a girl, but better

Tuesday, 4 April 2006

minute of silence.

time for me to be serious for a moment.
john mcgahern, ireland's greatest novelist passed away last week. me, mum and aunt peggy went to hear him talk about his 'memoirs' on the South Bank last year and there was no sign then of just how ill he was. his publisher, faber have a tribute site up at the moment. try 'amongst women' and move on to the autobiography.
