1) Published on 1st December, Kevin Cumming’s interviewed me awhile back about my books, including the new Calvino titled Jumpers. You can read it here.
2) My essay: Man in a Blue Scarf about a writer (Martin Gayford) interviewing a painter (Lucien Freud).
3) My documentary about Dutch artist Peter Klashorst is on vimeo. Klashorst was in New York City and ran in the circles that included Robert Mapplethrope and Andy Warhols. His art has landed in jail in Africa. Controversy continues around his work and live style.
4) I wrote a short piece (The Impatient Artist) connecting three creative forms to explore ideas that follow the same theme revolving around artistic work and expatriate lives: an essay, a documentary and a novel.
5) You can buy a paperback copy of Jumpers (Baht 643.23) in time for the holidays, with FREE shipping from Book Depository: http://bit.ly/2gbMsxZ. The ebook edition on amazon also ships free! http://amzn.to/2e31bKa But you knew that.
