The Following is a verbatim interview with the author at the launch of his second book: “Love nor Lack of Love.”


Interviewer: You’ve just published your second book. How does it feel?


Author: Sort of smooth like, and quite papery in the middle.


Interviewer: I see. It’s a preposterous title? What’s your excuse?


Author: I was very very drunk at the time of writing and I couldn’t quite remember if it was about love or whether it wasn’t about love so I thought the best thing to do in the circumstances was to intimate there might be love involved but to cover myself by also intimating that there may be a lack thereof.


Interviewer: So you fell between two stools?


Author: Quite frequently yes [hiccup.]
