Ta for the link! Review up on Amazon too, though I doubt it'll be visible yet. Five stars!
hahaha. Was "no problem finishing" the nicest thing I said about it? I am quite looking forward to see what you come out with next.
I'm coming to the Bookslam event tomorrow night. I will try not to get too scared to say hello.
Yer book is on the recommends list in my Shortlist magazine. I quote,"Killen's debut is a perfectly formed short novel about the young and the bored as they navigate their way through McJobs, relationships and fatigue with the modern world. Surreal, sexy and infused with humour so dry it's verging on dehydrated, The Bird Room is unlike anything we've read this year."Woop woop!
It was good to meet you the other night, Chris. I thought the bird wallpaper was a wonderful coincidence, by the way.I read the book before / after the No Point In Not Being Friends night. I loved the sadness of it all, and it made me laugh out loud on the bus.Immediately after reading The Bird Room, I wrote a short story about a gangster horse.
No Point In Not Being Friends was ace the other night, thanks for letting me read.I work in Blackwell bookshop. Some guy bought the Bird Room today. Hell yeahDave
Here's another one! http://dexterity97.blogspot.com/2009/01/review-bird-room-by-chris-killen.html
