Taken by Cato Lein at WALTIC in Stockholm last year.

Back by popular demand. A couple of readers asked me to put these portraits at the top of this page, rather than letting them slide into the archives. Although for those of you with time to spare, a ramble through the archives throws up all sorts of poetic gems and thoughtful morsels. Not to mention sashimi satire.

A new exhibition of Cato's portraits of writers will run from June 17th to July 31st at Hedengrens, Stockholm's largest and best-known bookshop. It will include the photos above, and others of Dennis Lehane, Zadie Smith, Le Cl├ęzio, Alaa al-Aswany, and more.

Hey, how'd you guess that I keep my brain inside the zippered jacket sleeves?

Now I'll have to find somewhere else to stash it (sigh).
