I am delighted that my memoir THE WAY TO HORNSEY RISE will be published in due course by the brilliant Holland Park Press. This is the story of a privately educated Surrey schoolboy who ended up in the squats, drugs and hippie scene of 1970s north London. The date of publication has not been finalised but pre-orders will guarantee publication in the autumn. Below is a review by Francis Gilbert, writer, critic and educationalist.
Small literary magazines are the unsung heroes of the literary world. They give a snapshot of contemporary prose and poetry; they enable writers to see their work published. #TheFrogmorePapers, whose first edition was in 1983, is an excellent example. I have been a subscriber (and sometimes a contributor) for many years. Take a look! www.frogmorepress.co.uk
I am delighted to have been awarded a PhD in Creative Writing ‘without corrections’ from Goldsmiths, University of London. Many thanks to my excellent supervisors, Prof. Blake Morrison and Prof. Andreas Kramer, and to my examiners, Prof. Francis Spufford and Prof. Sir Jonathan Bate.
