Limbo, NYC

Limbo is not a new aconym for a Manhattan neighbourhood, although New York City, where I’m writing from, is full of them – Loisa for the Lower East Side, NoLiTa for North of Little Italy, Dumbo for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. No, Limbo simply describes the in-between state I currently occupy, in which my book is bound and printed and champing at the bit, yet not out in the world of bookstores. I came here to wait out part of this hiatus, and have kept myself busy with friends and other work in the meantime (a feature article for a magazine, content for my new website). My publisher warned me I would find this period difficult, and she was right. I’m impatient for the book to kick and scream its way onto shelves, whatever the duration its shelf-life turns out to be.

  1. Dear Virginia,

    Congratulations on your exquisite little book. I have almost finished it and may I say it has been such a joy to read – and it looks so beautiful, too. UQP have done a marvellous job, you must be thrilled. You have painted such a vivid picture of your beloved John that I found the pages often becoming a little blurred….

    As a bookseller here in Perth I look forward to promoting your book and wish you every success.

    With warmest wishes and many thanks,

    Geraldine Blake
