From the Guardian:
Three years ago I wrote a book about a teenage boy who finds a dead old lady's ashes in a minicab office. I wrote it after work and on weekends. I carried a notebook around and scribbled stuff down in my lunch hour and typed it up when the kids had gone to bed. I went off TV and felt all pious because the book was more fun.
