I’ve been taking it easy in London for the last few days, enjoying the good life. Went to see Les Miserables for the first time in a few years. It’s just as powerful and moving as ever — easily my favourite musical, though it can be a bit more work than most musicals. I miss the days when it played in the much bigger Palace Theatre, but it’s still a huge show even on a smaller stage. On the movie front I’ve been to see The Road and The Book of Eli, a nice, cheery pair of post-Apocalyptic tales!! The former was my favourite of the two, though I didn’t love either. Also saw Up In The Air, which was much lighter and far more enjoyable — a smart, funny movie that deserves all the good press it’s been getting. And tonight I saw An Englishman in New York, which was on TV over the Christmas period, telling the second half of Quentin Crisp’s story — a nicely acted piece, though not incredibly dramatic. And that’s been pretty much that for the last few days — oh, what a hard life I lead!!!!!

    I absolutely love musicals. I don’t get to see them very often though, because of my time consuming job! 😦 By the way, I went to the bookstore today and i was looking through the horror section-I found a big shelf that had been about three quarters full… almost completely gone! Seems everyone loves your books Darren!!! 🙂

    Haha, sounds like a very, very hard life 🙂 But sometimes we all need days like that, isn’t that right? And if we have, it feels good.

    I was searching over the internet to find some extra information about your books, when I found this blog. Now I’m here, I want to give you a compliment for your work 🙂

    Best wishes,
