Wizard of Oz - Book Trailer

Here it is at long last, the film trailer for the book. It'll be up on my website shortly, but for now you can see it here (or if that doesn't work, try here It will put stardust in your eyes and a glittering glow in your heart.
Enormous thanks to Pete Mellor, who made all this happen; he is a very clever man. And to that actor bloke, Jeff Rawle, who did the voice-over.

Feature - The Times Magazine

There will be a big feature on my Wizard of Oz book in The Times Magazine this Saturday (Oct 11th). To be sure of getting a copy, go and wait outside your newsagents now.

Talks at Liverpool and Brighton

LIVERPOOL – I'll be giving a talk about The Wizard of Oz and other things on Friday 17th October at 2.00pm at The Bluecoat in Liverpool as part of their new Art and Literature Festival. Tickets are free. The talk will be followed by a discussion with artist David Blandy on 'The Art of Collage' and I dare say I'll be signing a few books afterwards.

BRIGHTON – I'll be giving a talk about The Wizard of Oz on Tuesday 21st October at 6.30 pm at the Old Market Theatre in Brighton (it might actually technically be in Hove). Susie Boyt will also be there talking about her new book 'My Judy Garland Life'. Tickets are £6 and you get a free glass of wine and discount on books. What a bargain.
