making Hay

Arriving at Hay

There is excitement at Schloss Marland; the Guardian Magazine is going to do an extract from the book, and so we're doing a photoshoot in Hay, next week. Richard is going to be airlifted in from France in the Random House Chinook, swooping majestically down from the Black Mountains; I shall putter up there in the Traveller, which can probably find its own way there by now...

Worrying about what to wear, now; Catherine advised me to go for smart rather than boho, and I nodded cautiously. And looked anxiously through the wardrobe... Richard will no doubt be wearing writer's stubble and a post-postmodern attitude. Easy for some...

What the heck. Boho is as boho does.
