Hollywood’s favourite crime writer is back!

Elmore Leonard, Fiction, Prize-winners

- February 8th, 2011

Not only has Elmore Leonard, our very own veteran crime auteur and ‘the world’s greatest living crime writer’, returned (aged 85) with a cracking new thriller Djibouti, but he has also inspired a hip-hop track by the producer of Justified:

‘The crime-writer’s crime-writer, king of all he surveys. For sharp plots and spot-on-dialogue, he’s in a different league’ – Ian Rankin

‘Elmore Leonard isn’t old school. He built the school’ – Joe Hill

Agent Peter Straus on Troubles by J.G. Farrell

J. G. Farrell, Prize-winners

- January 7th, 2011

J.G. Farrell was an outstanding writer, one of the best post-war novelists to emerge in the second half of the twentieth century, and had he not died prematurely in his early forties I have no doubt he would have had as illustrious an international career as William Golding and V.S. Naipaul, the last two fiction writers from Britain to win the Nobel Prize in literature. His publication career towards Troubles may give some idea why he is not as universally known, read and taught as he should be. Farrell’s first novel A Man From Elsewhere…

A poem by Kei Miller

Fiction, Kei Miller

- November 25th, 2010

Unsung

There should be a song for the man who does not sing

himself – who has lifted a woman from her bed to a wheelchair

each morning, and from a wheelchair to her bed each night;

a song for the man recognized by all the pharmacists, because

each day he has joined a line, inched forward with a prescription

for his ailing wife; there should be a song for this man…

John Miller on co-writing with Judi Dench

Judi Dench, Non Fiction

- November 25th, 2010

When I embarked in 1995 on my biography Judi Dench: With a Crack in Her Voice I never dreamt that it would be the first of a quartet on which I was destined to work for Weidenfeld & Nicolson.  That first book is still in print, I am happy to say, has been updated several times, and has now reached its 24th impression.  To mark her 70th birthday in 2004 I was asked to edit and introduce a tribute volume by a number of her friends and colleagues, entitled Darling Judi. That is the only…
