The Relief of Belsen, Channel 4

A reminder of the horrors which awaited my father as a war artist on arriving at the gates of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in June 1945, will be shown in a programme on the 15th October on Channel 4 television called The Relief of Belsen.

Gormenghast in Danish

The Danish edition of Gormenghast was published on 13th November, receiving 'six stars' from Jyllands Posten, one of Denmark's most respected newspapers. Jakob Levinsen who wrote the review heaped praise on both the novel, published by Ries Forlag, and the translation by Arne Keller who it seems has done a brilliant job with his daunting task.
