Monique Roffey and Mariella Frostrup: Open Book

Friend and writer Monique Roffey’s new book White Woman on a Green Bicycle is out now and gathers some good reviews. Despite this, she didn’t make the Man-Booker Long List and there’s me thinking it would be a shoe-in. Still there there’s a good chance of getting it on the Not the Booker Prize list that the Guardian is running. Follow the the link and nominate if you are inclined.

Of further note you can hear Monique on the BBC Radio 4’s Open Book show hosted by Mariella Frostrup, the thinking man’s pickled herring.

I played bass in Dyfed's first punk band, and living in Llandewi Brefi, had a grandstand view of Operation Julie.

Apart from my family, my interests include books, maps, Nikon, Yashica and Mamiya film cameras, British Culture 1935 - 1965, Poole pottery, Welsh textiles, and Poster art. My favourite movies include anything by Pressburger and Powell favourite music includes Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, and anything form San Francisco 1965-1970. I am a late convert to 'Kraut Rock'.
