Awesome, isn't it. I don't know whether you've seen me rant about him before, something that I do from time-to-time, he is one of my very favourite authors and reading that interview has just thrown his entire work into a new light (I'm never very good at interpreting meaning by myself - hence probably why I passed my English Language O-Level with flying colours [A grade] and yet failed my English Literature O-Level). He's also a lovely bloke - he emailed me out of the blue about three years ago, because I'd written a good review of one of his books on Amazon. Started up a dialog between us, and I've since met him at his local in Barnes.
He has a website here with a very lively and often surreal discussion board. I'm hopefully meeting up with MJH and four or five others from the board for drinks + meals on 5th December, just opposite the British Museum. I'm sure you + Max are welcome (in fact, anyone's welcome) if you fancy coming along (scroll down the board for details).
Thank you for inviting us, unfortunately that's during our Adventure Up North. We've decided to leave Dec. 1st and will be travelling for about a week.. I'm not sure when we'll be nearest to Sheffield yet, but it sounds like you might be in London anyway!
