Cinema – New Memoir Coming Soon

Cinema, a new memoir of my cinema-going and love of movies is, like the trailers say, coming soon.

As well as the various incidents experienced at film showings and festivals, this memoir includes interviews with the people I was fortunate enough to meet along with reviews of movies and events.

Provisional artwork yet to be finalised…
