Ryan Van Winkle Audio Book Launch
It has been oddly embarrassing to have my own book released by Salt Publishing. The book (Tomorrow, We Will Live Here) won Salt’s 2009 Crashaw prize and is available in the UK and US. Colin Fraser, the man behind all these podcasts, thought it would be nice to do a little podcast in celebration. So, here we have it. A virtual book launch. For anyone who missed the events at Blackwells or down in London. Which, I suppose, is a lot of people. I hope you enjoy the podcast and, if you want, please buy my book. You can find it here — on the Salt Site for a reasonable price. Max, I apologize for the hype. x
Presenter Ryan Van Winkle turns the spotlight on himself for a change and recreates the reading he gave in Edinburgh this week for the launch of his first book, Tomorrow, We Will Live Here. Includes themes and language of an adult nature. Produced by Colin Fraser of Anon Poetry Magazine. Music by Ewen Maclean. Twitter: @byleaveswelive & @anonpoetry. Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
