Invitation to Launch Ride the Tortoise and Toast Her Frank O’Connor Ambitions

On the invitation below is a photo of me, toothily grinning. It was taken well before I heard that Ride the Tortoise had made the long list for the Frank O’Connor Award International Short Story Award, but it serves pretty well to show how pleased I am to be rubbing shoulders with my absolute favourite authors – Joyce Carol Oates, Deborah Levy, Junot Diáz and Steven Barthelme.

It would be terrific if you could attend one of my Cape Town launches in the next few days, where we’ll be raising a glass, courtesy of Leopard’s Leap, to welcome the Tortoise to the world and wish her a steady plod onto the short list!
