Coming soon to a blog near you: the longest interview in the world. ALEX KEEGAN talks about many things, including BALLISTICS
" What did I do with that five thousand words? I'm sure I put them down somewhere..."
12th December sees the 20th anniversary of the Clapham rail disaster. Over the last few weeks I have been talking to a writer who survived the crash but whose life was changed radically as a result. Alex Keegan, as most people who read this thing know, was my tutor.
It IS the longest interview in the world. It may well have to be split into several component parts. And it is probably a bit of a text book. But he talks openly about the accident that changed him. About his writing. About his teaching. Why not?
So. On 12th December, the anniversary of the Clapham disaster, I will be posting the first part of the interview. The rail crash. What happened. And the aftermath.
