Troll Fell Launch Dinner

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Abandoning an attemot to drop in on the TES Summer party at the Serpentine Gallery when I got to the end of the South Kensington museum subway, looked at my watch and calculated the time needed for the remaining walk + time needed for return into West End, I turned heel and headed back to the Embankment and arrived at the Wellington St cafe soon after seven, to be immediately introduced to Katherine Langrish, author of Troll Fell.

Collins MD, Sally Gritten, delayed in traffic, eventually made an entrance worthy of Edina Monsoon, standing on the stairs leading down to the moodily-lit basement wearing her shades and shouting out her apologies. Katherine Langrish thanked those who had helped the book on its way to publication, revealing that it had been rejected by several publishers and agents, before being taken on by Catherine Clarke (at Felicity Bryan), then sold for a high sum in a hotly contested auction. She has just delivered the next book, ahead of deadline, provisionally titled Troll Mill.

Hi Michael,

I actually thought it was more of a Sophia Loren entrance but Edina would say that, wouldn't she? Thanks for the lovely pics.
