Huge thanks to the organisers of Bookstock, for inviting me to take part in an evening of readings and bookish discussion in London on Saturday. There was a wonderfully wide range of writers, a great compere, a fabulously engaged audience and some terrible literary jokes…

Here’s a snippet of me reading from a new novel:

(The title, in case you were wondering, is a literal translation of the Russian name for ladybird. But I’ve been told the book will never be published under this name, since no one buys novels with ‘god’ in the title, and even if someone did want to they’d hardly be able to since it’ll automatically be shelved in bookshops under ‘religion’…)

More video from the night here.
