Since leaving his post as The Guardian's Rock Critic in 2000, Tom Cox has written eight books, including the Sunday Times top ten bestseller The Good, The Bad And The Furry, and Close Encounters Of The Furred Kind, which will be published in October 2015 by Little Brown. His account of his year as Britain's most inept golf professional, Bring Me The Head Of Sergio Garcia, was longlisted for the William Hill Sports Book Of The Year Award, and he is currently working on the follow-up. Tom lives in Devon and writes about nature, folklore and the countryside in Devon Life magazine and at http://tomcoxblog.blogspot.co.uk. He also hosts a fortnightly radio show on the experimental rural radio station Soundart.
