MY GUEST BLOG AT PETINA GAPPAH'S
I am a guest blogger today (my first time!) on the amazing Petina Gappah's site. Petina was just this week shortlisted for the €35,000 Cork City Frank O'Connor Award for her début short fic collection from Faber An Elegy for Easterly.
On Petina's website she has a Proust questionnaire and her answer to the question 'What do you most admire in a woman?' is:
'A good sense of humour, especially the ability to laugh at herself. Kindness, integrity and elegance.' I like that. And what does she most admire in a man?
'A good sense of humour, especially the ability to laugh at himself. Kindness, courage and integrity.' Interesting!
Anyhoo, see my post on Ms Gappah's site, about the notorious pram in the hall, here.
