The week ahead

We're coming up to publication of The Thoughtful Dresser which you can order from Amazon (see side panel) or if you're abroad, with free delivery worldwide from The Book Depository.

There will be an extract in the Guardian to which I'll give you the heads up once they've confirmed the day. On Wednesday, the book's chief interview will be appearing on Woman's Hour. Catherine Hill was seventeen when she was transported to Auschwitz with her parents who did not survive. She arrived in Canada as a refugee after the war and from the sixties built a career as the fashion maven of Toronto, famous for her Yorkville shop, Chez Catherine. She'll be appearing with me at an event in London at Jewish Book Week chaired by Linda Kelsley, a former editor of Cosmopolitan magazine, (everyone welcome, even practising Wiccans). On Saturday I'll be at the Bath Festival taking about The Clothes On Their Backs. And there will be a second extract in the Guardian magazine.

The following Monday, March 2, I'll be on Start the Week and later that evening, Nightwaves. And sometime in the next few days you should actually be able to get the book.

I'm feeling very left out being here across the pond! *sniff*

I'm on the proper side of the pond now, but busy working on the Continent... This sounds wonderful. I haven't bought the Thoughtful Dresser yet (have been reading Linda's earlier books) but am wondering about the black, since I have/had friends who were survivors, with no aversion to black...

Will be awaiting comments in the press about the event.

I'm at Bath on Friday. But in London on Saturday, alas.

Heard the piece on Woman's Hour. Look forward to the book.
