My bestie Bernadette McAloon is 60. Beautiful poet, skilled child therapist, her magic power is assembling beauty, words, colours, flowers, fabrics, fragments of injustice, amplifying women writers, curating collections & altars, magnificent metaphors to live by #happybirthday

Delighted to have reviewed the first biography of Elizabeth Hardwick, my favourite writer, for @ftweekend. Sadly it doesn’t quite do its subject justice, but the attention is essential. This one goes out to my mum Bernadette who turns 60 today ft.com/content/05d00f12-f634…

I am so gratified to hear on the news that Number 10 are ‘keeping a close eye’ on Covid infection, hospitalisation and death rates. That worked so well for the tens of thousands their actions and inactions helped to kill during previous periods of close eye operations.

I reviewed Roddy Doyle’s latest short story collection for the @IrishTimes. Masterful as everything Doyle writes, but it raised questions for me about how a First Wave of serious literary Covid responses might treat the subject irishtimes.com/culture/books…

Watch this and see into the mind of our great leader…
Boris Johnson tonight on the BBC "I've given you the most important metric which is, never mind life expectancy, never mind cancer outcomes, look at wage growth." I beg to differ! Ghastly appalling disregard for our people.

Sabrina Johnston's Peace in the Valley is playing on top of the pops from 1991- a few years earlier she was one of the amazing Andrae Crouch choir that sang with us on Langley Park to Memphis.
