.. After reading a favourable review in 'The Telegraph' i bought ' The Secret Intensity...' .Loved it, & i am now engrossed in ''All the Hopeful...'' . Your insights into 'the coping classes', the juggling middle-classes of England , & their thoughts, fears & unfulfilled desires are spot on. The dialogue is realistic, & the characterisation believable. The writing flows, & its a lovely smooth read. Two unputdownable books read on the train into London on dark winter mornings.Thanks.Plans for a 3rd ?

William Nicholson responded:

I wish I could be on a train and look up and find you reading one of my books. In all my years as a published writer, this has never happened to me. I shall imagine it, and enjoy your comments. And yes, I am halfway through the third book in the series. It's called 'The Golden Hour', and will I hope be in shops next November.

I've just read your article in the Mail on Sunday about Affair's of men and their consequenxes, infidelity! Its as if your have seen my life for the last 18 months and re-written it. Could I ask more of you about living after one, alone with this guilt inside and still having no closure from the girl included.....

William Nicholson responded:

I can't offer more insight without knowing more about your situation. But to be honest, I'm no expert, and would be hesitant to advise you. All I can say is that you are not alone, that many people find a gap between their longings and the reality of their lives, and they fall into the hole between the two. It's not necessarily the end of everything. All any of us can do is be as honest as possible, with ourselves and with those we love and hurt; and as compassionate as possible, to ourselves as well as others. The only way to bring an end to guilt is to ask forgiveness and make amends. But in doing so, offer the truth of yourself, not a cover version designed to win approval. We all owe each other the truth, because anything else will not endure.

Bill, I lied, I really never read anything on your web page until just now. I am so embarrassed about the emails I have sent, please accept my apology. I never respond to articles and never guessed that it might be published. It is my fault for being so bold. Living in California I enjoy reading the London papers. I see from reading your past questions that you have quite a following in the UK. It has been fun. Take care and have a great Christmas. Hope your book sells well. Holly

William Nicholson responded:

Actually, it has been fun. I'm kind of touched by the whole exchange. This is the wonder of the internet, isn't it? A brief collision of lives six thousand miles apart. Have a wonderful Christmas yourself, and I hope your extraordinary story finds its day in the sun.

Not really a question, more a comment. I really enjoyed hearing you speak at Newick Park today; as a wannabe novelist working on my twentieth re-write, it struck a chord. I also enjoyed hearing you talk about Vic's sublime poetry. When it looked like the Runaway might close earlier this year I wrote about him in my column (I write for Viva Lewes every week). Here's the link in case you want another dose of Vic: http://small-pleasures.blogspot.com/2010/03/dont-runaway.html

William Nicholson responded:

Viva Lewes is a great magazine - I've read it many times. Long may Viva and Vic thrive.
