For those of you who didn't make it out to the Draft Reading on Sunday, or even if you did, you may want to check out A.J. Somerset's blog. He has posted a couple of pictures of the event - one of Michael Bryson reading from his short story collection The Lizard and one of me reading from the new manuscript. (A question for all of ya: Is it just me, or does it look like there's something horribly wrong with my left eye?) At any rate, thanks to A.J. for posting these.
For those of you who don't know, A.J. Somerset is this year's winner of the Metcalf-Rooke Award for his forthcoming novel Combat Camera, slated for release by Biblioasis this September. If it's anything like previous winners of the Metcalf-Rooke Award, the novel should be bursting with some of the finest writing this country has to offer and a voice that's hard to resist. You can read more about the book and its author here.
