I’ve really been enjoying Mark Knopfler’s new single, “Beryl” the last few weeks.  It’s a bit of an earworm, but I am absolutely not sorry for that.

The song’s about Beryl Bainbridge, who was consistently short-listed for the Man Booker Prize (Britain’s top literary award) but never won while she was alive–the year after she died, she was given a special prize by the committee.

At any rate, this song and its subject have been much on my mind the last couple weeks (for reasons) and I thought I’d share.
