Ian McMillan with the BBC Radio 3 Programme the Verb was entertaining and I spent some time listening in for the results of the Anton Chekov Short Story competition to hear my name read out as a winner but did I hear correctly .. Ian McMillan said some of the stories were so good that Chekov was talking from the grave and he wouldnt announce the winners until March 2013! I may not be around as I am sure I will take up that position on permanent offer to teach and write poetry in Istanbul to Celebs, Rock Stars, Footballers and of course all the famous people I know who commute to Istanbul on a regular basis.
JD Salinger didnt write much about anything after 65 but on The Verb they may have discovered unpublished work and JD Salinger died recently in ripe old age ... his most famous book was
"Catcher in the Rye". Ginger and Black .. very entertaining plus other great broadcasting writers ... great stories and a fine way to spend Friday evening ... alone on your own listen in to BBC Radio 3 Ian McMillan and The Verb . Hard work!
