Alan Garner At Home

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The History Man - Alan Garner knows every brick, tile and timber of his ancient home - The Times

It is in this medieval hall, in a room known as The Buttery, where liquor and expensive food were once stored, that Alan has written all his books. They include The Weirdstone of Brisingamen, The Owl Service, which won two literary prizes and was made into a television series by Granada, and his latest work, Thursbitch. Today there is no desk, computer or even typewriter, as Alan , who was appointed OBE in 2001 for services to literature, writes by hand, sitting in a low upholstered chair, his pad resting on a board on his knee.

Highly Recommended fature about Alan Garner, whose latest book Thursbitch is just out in paperback:
