January 2016

A Russian translation of Tell Me with The Reading Environment was published in November by Samokat Publishing House, Moscow. Translated by Ekaterina Oleynikova and Eugene Karpov, it includes a Preface by the writer Olga Gromova and an Afterword by Alexey Oleynikov, a teacher of literature.

My Italian publisher Rizzoli will launch their edition of one of my first short youth novels, now called Shadows on the Sand, in February, with the title Ombre sulla sabbia, translated by Beatrice Masini. This was originally published as Marle in 1968. I have revised it for this new version.

I have changed the title of the section on my website called ‘Journalism’ to ‘Essays and Articles’ because I intend to include in it texts of lectures, critical essays and work other than journalism. For this update I’ve added ‘Flash Fiction’, ‘Reading: The Heart of English’ and ‘The Theatre of Reading’.

I am now helped by literary agents Stephanie Thwaites and Emma Bailey at Curtis Brown Group, Haymarket House, 28-29 Haymarket, London SW1Y 4SP.
