From Within the Walls

  • A prisoner’s incarceration without hope of release is in many respects in like case to a sentence of death. He can never atone for his offence. However he may use his incarceration as time for amendment of life, his punishment is only exhausted by his last breath. (Lord Justice Laws, 2008)

Books I'm Reading

  • Jennie Erdal: The Missing Shade of Blue
  • Norman Davies: Vanished Kingdoms
  • Gyorgy Dragoman: The White King
  • Richard S Westfall: Never at Rest: A Biography of Isaac Newton

Why Write

  • One of my articles of faith as a novelist is that you are suspending judgment, you are not saying that this is better than that. You’re putting sympathy and compassion before moral judgment — which is not the same as saying there is no moral dimension to writing, far from it. I think there is a moral dimension, but it’s a moral dimension which is governed by empathy, compassion, and a preparedness to suspend easy judgment. (Graham Swift)
