Frankfurt Book Fair October 2010
I have never been to the Frankfurter Buchmesse although I live in Germany, for the town where I live in the far north of Germany, is about 5 hours by train. This is a long way to go for an East Frisian who has seen nothing more than the famous white and black milk cows most of his life.
So when Linda Tan Lingard, director of Yusof Gajah Lingard Literary Agency in Kuala Lumpur invited me to keep her company, I jumped at her offer. Linda had her snug little corner at the Malaysian stand which displayed the books of her clients. My PAYAH rain forest adventure series were among the books on her shelf.
The Fair ground is huge. The Fair building with its many stories and wings spread and sprawled over a wide area. It was exciting, and also extremely tiring.
