“Damnificados” launch in Turkey

A huge thank you to Pearson Turkey for arranging the launch of Damnificados in Istanbul.

We used a venue called Kolektiv House, a funky set of rooms for hire, which was clearly frequented by young, artistic types. I felt right out of place.

The event was for a select group of around twenty Pearson clients and contacts who read English literature, and it was a lot of fun. The only dampener was my croaky voice and rasping cough, which meant I couldn’t sing the Negro spiritual which I use as an epigraph at the beginning of the book. However, the wine and the words flowed and (I think!) everyone enjoyed the evening.
