My name is Noel Murphy. I’ve been a bookseller, publisher and now a born-again Geek. I’ve worked for Waterstone’s, Bloomsbury, Faber & Faber, The New Zealand Book Council and now Yale University Press all of which hugely exciting. Twenty years in the making, here are my personal thoughts on the world of books, and their attendant humans. Oh, and probably random stuff about my kids, politics, philosophy and life in the South. The really deep South.
For an extended version of why I blog see here.
Why Green Light? It’s a wonderfully romantic image and I like the way it signifies possibility and action. But most of all, The Great Gatsby is just my favourite book.
