Of flying time, book news and possums

I’ve been in Sydney since the beginning of the month timing flies, catching possums and “knipsing” bookshelves.

Possums – we had 5 in the roof at Mum’s – here’s the last one to be taken back to a reserve.

Bookshelves – Amazon is fine, but there’s a special thrill in seeing a copy from the original print run of Back Burning on the shelf: at A&R in downtown Sydney and out at the UNSW Bookshop under Australian fiction!
