Reviews for La Rochelle

Reviews for La Rochelle

‘The writing, which is clever, witty and ambitious throughout, becomes shot through with a wonderfully oneiric unpredictability. Nath can entertain with a whole page on different interpretations of what is meant by “a while”, and many of his similes and observations are original, funny and absolutely spot-on.’ – The Independent
‘… the writing is the star [...]

Reviews for Bringing It All Back Home Paperback

Reviews for The Train of Ice and Fire

Reviews for The Train of Ice and Fire

‘A fabulous account of a wonderfully borderline-insane trip.’ – Songlines *****
‘Any band that ever moaned about the freshness of the backstage towels should read this book. Chao Senior is a grey-haired presence among the Mohicans, primarily there to keep an eye on his sons. He becomes an excellent chronicler, placing us right in the thick [...]
