Very much looking forward to reading from The Leizpig Affair at the Literaturhaus in Halle on 18 September. I haven't been to Halle since 1986 so I'm expecting to see some changes.
The reading is part of a conference at the Martin Luther University in Halle-Wittenberg on British literary engagement with the "second world", which means the countries behind the Iron Curtain - a fascinating topic. After the reading, I'll be in converstation with Katrin Berndt, professor of English literature and culture at the university, about the inspiration behind the book.
