Tune the cat’s whiskers to 40 mb

If anybody has broadband and wants to hear the whole event:

Recording of complete event (with Daljit’s readings edited down to two out of six, alas) (40 mb mp3, could take a while to download – only practical on broadband). Apart from the poems listed here, Daljit also read “The Speaking of Bagwinder Singh Sagoo”, “To the Wealth of India” and “Parade’s End”.

The complete program:

  • Welcome and intros (yours duly)
  • Jeff Achampong reading from a novel-in-progress, working title “Haemoglobin S”.
  • Lynsey Rose reads two poems and an excerpt from newly completed novel.
  • Claudette Gordon reads four new poems.
  • Elle Ludkin reads love poems and a journal about a loved one’s battle with cancer.
  • Stephen Moran reads five poems: “To the People of New Earth”, “Willesden Sunset, January”, “Lines Between Day and Night”, “The Dolls’ Hospital” and “Inisheer”.
  • Dale Arndell reads a short story.
  • (At last!) Daljit Nagra, reading from “Look We Have Coming to Dover!”

I was born in Dublin and made my way to London on a bike in my mid-twenties. It’s where I can still be found though ever further out, most recently as far as Harrow. I no longer own a bicycle.
