I'm uploading just one photo and all the text. If you want to see all the other photos, go to my other blog: www.dianelockward.blogspot...

Honesty, I think, was the link common to the very different writers at the Literary Death Match. I listened to every word with moment-to-moment renewed respect, and heard an honesty I aspire to. Andrew's crystal clear, compact glimpses, Rupert's passion and brutal pictures of political ca-ca,...
