The Sunday Round-Up Gets Later Every Week

Lots of videos in the round-up today. First of all, here's David Ashton talking about Inspector McLevy. Next, a quickie with Irvine Welsh on the filming of ECSTASY. 4 videos of Alexander McCall Smith at the Toronto Public Library. And here's Louise Welsh reading her short story Vanishing Point.

And an audio interview with Philip Kerr.

Talking of whom - Tzer Island reviews FIELD GRAY by Philip Kerr, as does Oregon Live reviews Charles Cumming's THE TRINITY SIX. And a couple for Kate Atkinson's STARTED EARLY, TOOK MY DOG. While MmegiOnline reviews Alexander McCall Smith's THE SATURDAY BIG TENT WEDDING PARTY.

An interesting article on Denise Mina's work in progress - GODS AND BEASTS.

And, finally, the BBC is coming under fire for sneering at genre fiction during World Book Night.


  1. But if the BBC didn´t support ´literary fiction´, who would buy it? ;)

  2. Loving the fact that all these writers chipped in. I watched the tv programme they're talking about and remember thinking - who died and made Sue Perkins the Queen of Literary Taste?

    I wonder how much Denise will deviate from the Sheridan story?

  3. Oh and May Contain Nuts is 2 today! Get me. And I put up a song you can swing your pants to.

  4. Dorte - LOL!

    Michael - I am intrigued to read it! And happy birthday, you! Off to have a listen.
