I began the week with a public talk I gave about Libya and the wider international refugee crisis, in part to publicise my book, The Toss of a Coin: voices from a modern crisis.

Maybe it's connected to being of a generation that can remember 'proper' trains with carriages, corridors and sliding doors and windows that opened so you could lean out and get soot smuts on your face.

I was delighted to kick the initiative off on the 1st of December with a chat over the phone about my own business, AA Editorial Services: http://www.aaedits.co.uk I also had a few minutes on the actual radio talking about this here blog.
