Here’s Irvine Hunt, reading from his latest novel, The Ghost Show. He is now well into his eighties. We talk regularly on the phone and Irvine tells me that he continues to write every day. I am giving a talk to Years 7 and 8 at Settlebeck School in Sedbergh at the end of the month, linking up with Irvine on Skype. The head of English at Settlebeck, Mrs. Ingham, tells me she has a very enthusiastic group of writers in these year groups. I’m looking forward to meeting them and introducing them to Irvine.
