Hello you beautiful Unbounders,
How are you all? Now golden autumn has arrived and the Springfield Road audio book has arrived too! Attached to this shed post a short audio sample to whet your appetite: Chapter 49 / Eulogy. A poem for my grandmother Nanny and also fittingly a poem for Black History month too. If you'd like to hear more I posted a different autumnal sample on my Mixcloud click here
It has been a year since the book has been published!
Happy birthday Springfield Road!
Thank you for all your kind words, gorgeous amazon reviews and twitter mentions. I posted some highlights at the latest Waiting For Godden www.salenagodden.com Lately I've been really feeling the end of the summer crashing about me...I blame the supermoon!
Earlier this month I was interviewed by Garry Bushell for his GBH show on Litopia.

It was a lovely and lively hour, chatting about books and poetry and music.
This week you might have seen a glimpse of me on your television, I was topping and tailing the BBC4 'Rhymes, Rock and Revolution' documentary The poem the BBC used was 'Tick No Box' - It was filmed at Poetry Reincarnation at The Roundhouse, Camden.
I'm thrilled to be down in Hastings on November 11th ... I love going home so much. I'm speaking at the Hastings Story Telling Festival. Lots of top writers including David Walliams and Will Self, its gonna be a good one! See you in Hastings...
Keep fighting the good fight,
