This is where I spend most of my evenings (note the empty wine glass), scribbling and generally faffing around. The rest of the study is in even more of a state, even with the new bookshelves put in. One day, if I’m brave, I’ll put in a picture of the entire room.
Too bad Alice’s head’s been cut off by the lamp – it’s one of my favourite Rackhams. (Note the witch off to the right! I love her.) The black and white photo on the right is of the flat I lived in, on Queen street, in my last year in Dunedin. Ben took the photo.
I love looking at pictures of other people’s writing areas (like the guardian series of authors’ rooms). I think mine looks cluttered but still quite welcoming.
