Places in NHNT

My novel, Neither Here Nor There, due to be published later this year, describes several places in Jerusalem that I’ve mentioned before on this blog. Like the market, Machane Yehuda.

Jaffa Road and the light railway (which has been going for two and a half years).

The German Colony, which I mentioned here.

Yemin Moshe, where I used to live, and which I described here and here and here.

There are some other places in Jerusalem that get a mention in the novel. I’ll have to photograph them, too.

There are also places in London that feature in the novel. I haven’t taken photos of them and they’re a bit far away from me for a quick snapping session.

Place can often drive a novel. It certainly drives mine.

Nothing can happen nowhere. The locale of the happening always colours the happening, and often, to a degree, shapes it.
