A PAEAN TO DARTMOOR

Hound Tor
The lovely people at Cyprus Well are posting fiction podcasts by writers who live in the South West. Their first episode includes an extract from my forthcoming novel. (Follow this link, click on Writer Bites One, then scroll forwards to 33:19.) I chose this section to read as it captures much of the novel's aesthetic heart, namely its setting - the uplands of Dartmoor. Apologies if I sound a little nasally: tis the pollen season.

Tom, you brilliantly capture the awkwardness of watching tv - even the supposedly safe wildlife show. Marvellous. Never forget my gran flicking over from an unnecessary graphic kiss on one side to bbc2 and the delilghts of bonobo chimps.

Love the evocation of the landscape, too.
