This blog is being set up to accompany my book Fado and the Place of Longing: Loss, Memory and the City (Ashgate, 2010). I hope to post draft extracts from the book, research notes and pictures relating to the project. While the book itself is specifically about the Portuguese musical style known as fado, I want to reflect on the “place of longing” more generally as well.

Update (May 2013). This blog is not currently being updated but remains as an archive of work related to my book on fado. I have another blog to accompany the second book I wrote, on Nina Simone (published by Equinox in June 2013). I also have a personal website called Late Voice, which has details about my other work and acts as a repository of ideas for my third book project, also called The Late Voice.
