A walk in Clissold Park

by Tim Bradford on June 8, 2014

Had a great walk out in the rain yesterday morning in Clissold Park, during which I outlined my four point plan (or is it seven?) for fully appreciating your local area. Brought along one of my sketch books and a few copies of my latest dodgy hand-drawn map. Various people did readings from my book A London Country Diary and we discussed  important topics such as how to decode discarded beer cans, when to break into parks and why magic trees talk in Yorkshire accents.

newhouselandscape2(acrylic on canvas)           It might seem that this painting is about my dislike of crazy rural planning and the ravages of late capitalism, but in fact it’s just as much a critique of my own sensitive approach – I sometimes romanticise the landscape and ignore the conditions and lives of people who live in it. (The new house is crap, though).   Currently on display at The Good Earth exhibition at The Conference Centre, St Pancras Hospital, 4 St Pancras Way, London NW1 OPE https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Good-Earth/766292756715745 2014 © Tim Bradford

Slowboat: book review

by Tim Bradford on May 28, 2014

20140204-143545I’m not in the habit of flagging up reviews – once a book is out there I have tended to take the view that it has a life of its own and I try to let go of it. However, I thought this write up in the Slowboat blog ‘got’ what I was doing to such an extent that I feel duty bound to mention it.

See review here.

Lots of People in a Bookshop

by Tim Bradford on April 14, 2014

lcd3-400x266It was great to see friends old and new at the book launch at the Stoke Newington Bookshop. I talked about some of my motivations and influences – such as Julian Cope, Iain Sinclair and the Wonderful London books. Then Stewart Lee read a very funny, subtlely pared down version of his introduction and I did a few pages from the book, before inviting friends to read out certain bits (which seemed to work better than me doing them). Thanks to everyone who came along and for injecting so much cash into the Stoke Newington pub system afterwards.

Read here for a more objective and detailed view of the evening.
