My First Book

From yesterday's Times, David Almond talks about his first efforts at fiction writing, in a feature that included Margaret Atwood, Ali Smith and Ian Rankin. [Scroll down the webpage to locate Almond's section.]

When this book, Skellig, was published by Hodder, I was called a new writer. It was assumed that it must be my first book. No one had heard of the little Iron Press or the little Sleepless Nights. But both books shared a starting point, in a room in an ancient Suffolk farm, and both were similarly important to me, in building that unpredictable pursuit called a literary career.
