Back to College. Posing in Cannes. 1963.


Little Toller publishes Home Country

During the autumn I will be at Emmanuel College Cambridge on a Visiting Fellowship, chiefly to finish work on The Cabaret of Plants, which will hopefully be published in October 2015. A draft of the introduction can be found on this site in Work in Progress.

While in Cambridge I will be giving a few talks in connection with the book. Details in Events.

And Little Toller have just published a paperback of  my 1990 memoir  Home Country, which has much on the heady days of the 1960s.
