Why I wrote Midland...
Just a quick post to alert you to a piece I've written for the Telegraph about the origins of Midland. It's a slightly simplified version of the story of course, there are other originating factors too (some of which I'll be talking about over the next few weeks here in the Shed) and there was only limited space in the piece. But it covers off nicely my father's influence on the writing of the novel and the way that my time running the Telegraph Weekly World Edition fed back into it too.
Here's the link, in case you haven't seen it already.
