One fun thing that happened to me at the Edinburgh International Book Festival was that I was grabbed by the nice people at Guardian Books and asked if I’d contribute to a writers’ alphabet they were putting together. All I had to do was come up with a favourite word. Most of the letters were already gone, but they did have a succulent-looking V remaining. I walked around Charlotte Square a couple of times and worked out what I wanted to say. Here’s the result.
You can see the entire alphabet, from Ruby Wax on a-whoring to Shadow Titan on Zulu, by going here.
