Some CHICK who writes about LESBIANS on SPACESHIPS?
I think they’ll probably list me as ‘United Kingdom’, but my family might like a mention of Ireland. I’ll email the committee about that. I’m sure they’ll speak English. You can’t get by with Romanche.
I think the theme of my speech is going to be ‘Human Rights and the Force of Literature’. I’ll quote that Auden stuff about poetry making nothing happen.
Bloody hell. My passport expired last month. I’d better sort that out.
I really think it should be my year.
How much longer can they overlook my contributions?
Bet they give it to Carey or Murakami or some shit. Stephen bloody Fry.
