Coming soon to a blog near you....CHARLES LAMBERT, A SCENT OF CINNAMON
I am hosting one of the stop-offs for Charles Lambert's Cyclone tour, Something Rich and Strange, on 9th December. His collection the Scent of Cinnamon is recently published by Salt... the title story having found great success in the O Henry awards. So, I am the proud owner of this story TWICE, in two different books.
Tra la, and other wonderous warblings.
Charles is a wonderful writer. Intelligent, layered, rich. And yes... strange. ie... brave. Unafraid to not deliver the predictable. To explore issues that matter.
What am I rambling about?
Read this blog on 9th December. But meanwhile, catch up with the latest stop off chez Jockohomo HERE where there is an interesting discussion about whether Charles sees himself as a 'gay writer' and how his work is shaped by his sexuality. If at all... go read!
