Morning all. I've been here since 8 again, marking first-year essays (competent, but mostly displaying total a total lack interest in literature: it's not just about plot description, kids) and reading Lorna Sage's Bad Blood for this afternoon's class. It's really very good: an academic's tale of growing up in a deeply dysfunctional family on the Welsh border, with a repeated acting motif. Highly recommended.
Right, back to the marking.
