Book Slam in May was ineffably fun and cool. Fiction came from NED BEAUMAN, one of Granta’s latest batch of the Best of Young British Novelists, who introduced us to his new novel, ‘Glow’, and the excellent EMMA JANE UNSWORTH, author of 'Animals' ('I wish I had written this book ...' said Caitlin Moran). They were fun and cool. ELVIS MCGONAGALL was smart, sharp and laugh-out-loud funny. He was fun and cool too. Music came from BENIN CITY. If you don't think they were fun and cool, you clearly know the meaning of neither word. It was hosted by LOLLY ADEFOPE - she's definitely fun, if not exactly cool. And us? We were there as well.
