A most successful fiction debut.” - Inforadio Berlin)

New book deal inked with Galiani/KiWi

I'm happy to share that I inked a deal for my first fictional book with Galiani, the Berlin division of renowned publisher Kiepenheuer & Witsch (KiWi).

The book is set to be published in Germany in spring 2017. Film rights have been retained.

Galiani works with authors such as Karen Duve, Jenny Erpenbeck and Sven Regener and has produced one of my previous works, “A Short History of Nuclear Folly”.

Talk at this year's 'JA! Bilbao' event

I have just returned from the annual "JA! Bilbao" festival on humour in art and literature. I had been invited to give a talk in the city's Sala BBK auditorium followed by a book signing. I was very favourably impressed both by the city and the quality of the event which is now closing its sixth edition. My visit was covered by El Mundo and various other media, of which I'm copying in a link below. The festival website, should you be interested, is jabilbao.com

As some of you may have noticed, I wrote a dozen or so film columns for NEWSWEEK (European edition). For those interested, I've attached some recent “peer reviews” of mine below. There are plenty more on the Newsweek web page and of course in the print issues.

Meanwhile, have a prosperous and happy summer and enjoy the read.

The awards ceremony will take place at the Old Vic in Bristol on Sunday, March 9th 2015. I'll be attending the event.
