In My Own Words:
I'm a writer and a journalist. My novels, CRUSHED - an illustrated, Young Adult novel, and FRANTIC, a saga about the nostalgic early '70's have both been published by Eiworth Publishing.

FRANTIC took me decades to write. I wrote the first draft in the early Seventies after my return to London from an extended vacation in San Francisco. My regular nocturnal visits to David Hockney's basement in N… Read more

A History of Facelifting by Duncan Fallowell

If the world is about to end and you need cheering up, this beautifully written novel is a necessity. Duncan Fallowell is not only an original and exquisite writer, his deadpan prose is laugh out loud funny too.

"Try Me" is am exquisitely written Memoir by Farah Damji, whose explosive prose makes me think this ingenue author is a female Jean Genet in the making. Her literary bravery should be congratulated as she unselfconsciously bares her soul, unrelentlessly recapturing her dynamite fused life which includes a cocktail of Transatlantic society glamour and self-destruction. Damji's DNA of privilege leads to sex, drugs and blatant notoriety with a c.v. boasting imprisonment , all deliciously delivered in a poetic hardboiled writing style. The mixture of her bad girl adventures beautifully dished up in her distinctive and original prose both succeeded in enthralling me so much, I couldn't put… Read more
