Victoria Williams: 0204

MAPS: The Royal Exchange Theatre. I saw Jeannette Winterson reading from her new book. It sounded good, although I didn’t hang around afterwards to buy a copy. I was impressed by some of the questions from the audience members, including one girl who said she’d been born to parents who’d really wanted boys. Her way of dealing with this had been to get a bus to Manchester. My solution had been to cut all my hair off, start wearing three-piece suits and twirling a pocket-watch on a chain, but it turned out that that was not the sort of boy my father really wanted. So here I am in Manchester too.
