London loves the kilt. As I bussed and walked down to Earls Court I’ve been constantly talked to by admirers of the kilt … They were friendly and welcoming in a way I’ve never experienced before.
Stop the ethnicity, you say. What about London Book Fair?
The scale is large yet a lot of the conversations seem parochial. I’ve been to my share of trade shows. In LBF you can see stands with people looking inwards. I’m here. I’m in. And I’m an outsider; maybe all authors are.
Orientation is all. For the next few hours I’m going to attend some sessions and explore.
