NATIONAL BOTANIC GARDENS - DUBLIN

A little bit of trumpet blowing is in order. I've finally got my hands on a copy of the brochure for Green Thought in an Urban Shade, which has been showing at Glasnevin, Dublin. For complex reasons I couldn't get to the Irish show, and so this is the first time I've really seen how our material was handled there. I'm very pleased with this. I think the marrying of Fion Gunn's paintings with my fiction has been beautifully managed.

The show was very successful; Fion had sold ten pieces the last time I spoke to her, which is good, although not more than an artist of her calibre deserves - and nice things had been said about the project generally.

The next Green Thought in an Urban Shade exhibition will be at the Waterloo Gallery in London in May.

No, I haven't forgotten about the sixteen clever transitions mentioned in my previous post. I'm thinking of setting a little quiz about sex and writing where all entrants will receive the sixteen transitions as a reward for entering. Am I nasty? Yeah ...
