Future projects
 
‘Work in progress’, as all writers know, is an elastic phrase, embracing a range of true meaning from ‘final draft completed’ to ‘merest gleam in the eye for the next decade if I live that long’. But expansions upon earlier literary emphases are being actively considered, including Acts of the Apostles, other poetry by Lorca, haiku by the Japanese poet Issa, and a new translation of Rilke's Duino Elegies.'
