Make Architects and my publishers Batsford are hosting a party with free drinks and a book talk by yours truly where I run through the craziest and funniest projects from my Unbuilt book and sign some books after.

Thanks to everyone who came to mac in Birmingham and enjoyed a pint of foaming nut brown ale while I shot the breeze live on stage with Oxide Ghosts and Brass Eye director Michael Cumming after the Oxide Ghosts screening earlier this week. We talked Ted Maul, spherical cows and how Charlie Brooker met Chris Morris.
Hi Japanese friends! My book Unbuilt has been translated into Japanese and is out in Japan through Graphic sha Publishers. Enjoy!
Had a blast filming with Arte in Berlin last week. We made a little film together about me and some of my books and you can see it on their arts show Twist on Mar 6.
Thanks to everyone who came to the sold out talk I did with Rob and the London Society, Melodie Leung and Elain Harwood on Feb 17. It was so great to chat to so many people after and to get a few laughs during my *set*. We are scheduling in more London events soon. Watch this space!
Lovely surprise to be nominated for a writing award for my travel writing.
I’ll be asking Brass Eye director Michael Cumming whether UK really does now stand for Unbelievable Krimewave on Mar 14. Please join me in Birmingham as I host the Q&A for Oxide Ghosts: The Brass Eye Tapes.
I’m busy beginning researching and writing my next book City Park. It’s a celebration of urban parks around the world and the life and experiences we have in them, from playing as kids to flirting as teenagers, lockdown lust, picnics, pools, street food, sport, suntans, music festivals and everything else in between. Get in touch via the contact page if you have any great stories to share or favourite parks you’d like me to discuss.
Had a blast on the UK Book Tour for Unbuilt in Nov in Leeds and Dec in Birmingham. Thank you SO much to everyone who so kindly helped out organising these events and all the lovely people who came to them to listen to me speak about my latest book. We will be premiering a video of the Leeds talk online very soon with a live Q&A. Watch this space! London date coming very soon….
