Money versus reputation

Lynn Barber profiles James Hamilton Paterson at the Observer. I want to read this guy's books--I remember being absolutely delighted with the excerpt from Cooking with Fernet Branca published in Granta a few years ago (also this is the point in the semester--and I am having a remarkably enjoyable semester, all told, my classes are very good and there's lots of stimulating stuff going on--when I want to retire to a European city where nobody knows me and write a lot of books, I am starved for writing time these days...).

  1. I just read "Cooking with Fernet Branca" and loved it. So caustic & funny.

    p.s. Congrats on the race, by the way. You're my heeeero.
