In 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19 I was a fiction reader/reviewer for the first round of the James Tait Black Award.

I was a Scottish Review of Books ’emerging critic’ in 2018-19, mentored by Andrew Crumey. My short review of Esi Edugyan’s Washington Black was part of the 2018 SRB ‘literary advent calendar. You can read it here.

My 2019 review of Kevin Barry’s novel Night Boat to Tangier, for The List magazine, can be read here. I gave it four stars.
