Sion Smith was once described as 'Byronesque' and 'a cross between George Orwell and Hank Moody', which is probably the nicest thing anybody has ever said about him. If you happen to meet, he likes to talk over coffee about first editions, vinyl albums, travel, Doctor Who, crime fiction and shamanism. He writes longhand with a Waterman fountain pen.
"You recall that segment in The Doors movie where Jim is walking to the plane, the interviewer asks him what his occupation is and Jim very satisfactorily responds 'Just Jim'? That's what you'll get here. Jim ran to Paris. I prefer Copenhagen, but the rules are the same."
