A last couple of readings before the London’s transport system becomes too sclerotic with Olympic madness. At the Lamb on Tuesday John Muckle read from his novel My Pale Tulip (Shearsman, 2012) over two brackets. New writers Ann Prendergast (top) and c-weed (aka Cathy Weedon, middle) read a bracket each. It’s always difficult to present novels at a reading but Muckle preserved the wit and pace. Prendergast and Weedon both presented fine poems though the former tended to rush her material a little.
