thought i remembered he did something similar in the guardian &... who cares about ann quin?

Film sounds like it would be terrible. I've already had to watch the excruciating adaptation of Christie Malry, I don't think I could stand to see Berg slaughtered.

Seems awfully familiar too, I must have seen it once, but you lose track of crap British made box office duds.

And other stories are putting a collection of short stories and fragments by Quin
― xyzzzz__, Tuesday, 16 January 2018 15:43 (two years ago) link
haven't read the new collection, but it's worth following the ann quin page on facebook. the account, which i think is run by carol burns (alan burns' ex wife), occasionally posts letters and other personal documents
