Neither here nor there

Festival “spine poetry” and cappuccino!

At Christchurch airport, with a coffee and some spine poetry, on the way to the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival.

Here are the books of  three authors I’ll be interviewing this week: Kathy Lette, Roddy Doyle and Jeffrey Eugenides. From the top down, their titles make a neat little spine poem:

The boy who fell to earth

Bullfighting

The marriage plot

But there’s a whole lot of other great titles as well, how about:

The Woman who changed her brain

Bullfighting

Snowdrops

Getting excited now – and no, it is not just the result of one airport coffee!

Got any festival spine poetry of your own to share?
