Cassiopeia followed me to Paris, glittering the windows of an estate agent. A curious association of a vain queen with property. After Paris, to Dakar. Not for a motor rally, but to represent Scottish PEN at the International PEN Congress from 4th July where a worldwide gathering of writers will debate issues of freedom of expression, the oppression of languages and writers, and the particular issues of building resources for African writing and and publication.
