Hi everyone,

Watched this yesterday and as a fan of Rankin's work a really intresting program on how he does his work. He films himself from day one of starting his new novel all the way to the end. Quite a good watch to see someones process, well that and Mogwai is on the soundtrack.

Hopfully the link should be working, if not there should be an american link abouts somehwere on the bbc site.

Laters,

Dave

He's one of my favorite commercial fiction writers.

I haven't read Rankin's work but I enjoyed watching that. The BBC should have provided subtitles though as I can't understand a word those Edinburgh folk say.
