Road Markers

Brisbane's suburb of West End houses a wonderful little bookshop called Avid Reader. It's narrow and long, with a café towards the back and an outside area regularly used for book launches and author events. The shop has the habit of employing and so in a sense sponsoring emerging writers.

It was here that I launched my memoir The Promise of Iceland in August last year. This week I have a small piece in the March edition of the bookshop's magazine.

My piece, called 'Road Markers', is about my interest in former UN Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld. It is printed in the Travel section and available for free here.
