. . . when it happened
Michelle Shepherd-Barron writes in Britain and America.
Enjoyed your blog… very freudian – the mouldy grapes…..
I found the blog address. I read every word and studied every picture and it all made me miss you very much.
i think I’ve done this once. but here go again
Brilliant…I see a book deal coming. We need a sharp-eyed American perspective on the foibles of life…British life.
lovely to see you looking so pretty. Yes, you must be pretty pleased with those illustrations. Hockney meets Matisse. The writer whom I would adopt in a pst modern sense as my alter ego and totally write in the style of ONLY BECAUSE by adopting another persona it frees you to talk about other stuff like Barry Humphries and Dame Edna. The writer who would free me up is Georges Perec- Life a users Manual and the very excellent Species of Spaces and Other Pieces. Enjoy yourself in NY. Best , Paul
Loved your latest too Michelle – have read them all – excellent sketches too – this is a must for my writing group xx
As another ‘foreigner’ on this soil, I so enjoy your blogs Michelle. Find myself laughing out loud – illustrations also wonderful. Keep going and I look forward to the book – how exciting!!
Keep up the good work!
I like the light-hearted, airy tone of the stories. This autobiography in the form of short tales is a very clever way of building a nice, big picture of your life.
A suggestion: I would sometimes like to know what the reaction to your outfit was under the circumstances, e.g., the all white stuff you wore when you met your future in-laws.
Maybe the title should be “The Reversed Immigrant”.
Hey Michelle, met you ages ago in San Francisco, friend of Sheila, like your writing.
Love the two stories I’ve read so far, and I can’t wait to read the rest of them – I’ll be able to laugh aloud when I’m not in the middle of a busy office!
