Mike Smith will be reviewing Patchwork in the October edition of Derbyshire Life. (The whisper is that he liked it.)

The Parisian Quartet is complete. Beneath Napoleon’s Hat made up of Eagles without a Cliff, A Black Violet and Sylvia Beach and the Melancholy Jesus has been joined by the full-length novel Patchwork. I read short extracts from each volume and talked of the creation of this collection in the marquee behind the Old Ship Inn on Saturday, June 25th at the Lowdham Book Festival.
