A heads up that I will be reading of ghost rivers, riots and bodgers – and other excerpts from Silt Road – at the next Caught by the River Social on the evening of the 30th April, the Queens Head, Denman Street, London W1. I’ll be in the very good company of cult Arcadian John Andrews, poet-in-residence Will Burns, and aeronautical flaneur-photographer Neil Thompson. Good beer, good words, good friends. It would be very nice to see you there. Doors open 7pm. Advance tickets £5 via Caught by the River available here.
