I have made a book of short stories about festivals. It’s called Ten and a half crepes to London and it’s available to buy online.
I’ve found myself at a lot of festivals over the past few years (writing and with We Are Words + Pictures or Videopia) and I’m fascinated by the attitude they instil in people. They’re a chance to unwind, to indulge in fanciful behaviour and/or to simply behave like a complete loon. This I find endlessly fascinating.
These twelve short stories and one comic are a blend of fact and fiction, taking some of the highlights of overheard conversations and impulsive moments of idiocy and adding a healthy dose of sh*t storytelling to the mix. I hope you enjoy them.
Thanks to Timothy Winchester for drawing the comic and to my dad for doing the illustrations and cover model.
