    Watching the BBC4 Simon Sebag Montifiore History of Spain, I jumped up and down when he got to Cordoba and realised just how clever your story is in "Something Rich and Strange". I adored "Samsara" in "Seeming Glass" , a cracking short story, but "Speaking the Girls" is surely worthy of a complete novel? And that's a compliment. I want more. Brilliant.
