Last night I spent a wonderful evening at Penguin Towers.  The view from the 10th floor was beautiful – the Oxo Tower and even the National Theatre look stunning at night – and I had a wonderful time speaking to authors as diverse as Alain de Botton, Phil Earle, Ben Masters and Robert Macfarlane.  I came away with some brillliant literary booty too:

1) Daughters by Elizabeth Buchan

2) Noughties by the precocious, but not pretentious, Ben Masters

3) The Murders in the Rue Morgue and Other Tales by Edgar Allan Poe

4) Time Riders by Alex Scarrow

5) The Old Ways by Robert Macfarlane

6) Into the Valley of Death by A L Berridge

7) Some lovely Penguin notebooks.

My only regret was not speaking to the editor of Vogue about making her tea and coffee until the end of time, just to be near the mothership of that hallowed publication…
