Friday: I talk to Paul's agent, Mark Stanton about his work.

It's going to be good.

See you later for the review of Paul's new book. In the meantime here is some comments from the critics:

"Remarkably, given the bleakness of both subject and hero, it is an incredibly good read."

Marianne MacDonald DAILY TELEGRAPH

"grows more and more poignant as the novel progresses.. satisfyingly full-bodied and slips down a treat."
