I've just had a small travel piece published in Granta's online edition. It starts as follows:
The last time I flew alone was during the literary festival season of 2009, when I had to go from Guernsey to Glasgow – complete with a criminally early start – in time for a reading at the Wigtown Book Festival. I loved the buzz of just making it, always have – as a young boy in Accra, I was known to burst into classrooms, backpack overflowing with books with just moments to spare before class. Unfortunately, I have had to dispense with that small pleasure since I began to travel en famille.
