I went to New York this week--Dan never got there, I'm pretty sure, but it was lovely to be in his home country anyway. I met my US editor at Ecco / HarperCollins, Dan Halpern. We're very excited about bringing All True out in America this August. Just a few spellings to Americanize from the first edition . . ..
No Boone portraits in the Met, MOMA, or the Frick, and sadly for me and other 18th-Century geeks the Folk Art Museum was closed to set up a new exhibit, but I had a brilliant time looking around. Twitter's #museumselfie day coincided with my visit, so I did my level best with Laurie Simmons, the Temple of Dendur, and Edward Hopper (I've talked about this painting in classes on magic realism so many times!). And that's a Jasper Johns to the left.
I'm the author of My Name is a Knife, All True Not a Lie In It, and The Old Familiar.
