for writers and readers….

So much better than having a road named after you…

PortsmouthJust read in GALLEYCAT that today Sunday August 18 the city of Portsmouth – famous for its naval base – is going to honour author Neil Gaiman by naming a road after his latest novel. How cool is that – especially as his most recent publication has a delicious title. From now on, the bus lane, west of Canoe Lake in Portsmouth, will be known as The Ocean at the End of the Lane. The only pity is that it sounds as though no one lives there.

If you had the choice what work of fiction would you live in?

5 The Philosopher’s Stone

Flat 10, Wolf Hall

16a Persuasion Tower (but that sounds less like Jane Austen and more like Secret Service HQ)
