I’m looking forward to the launch this evening at Daunt Books, Marylebone High Street, of our tutor Howard Cunnell’s beautiful memoir, Father and Sons. It tells the story of his growing up without a father, and later in life his reaction to his daughter becoming his son. It’s a book which explores masculinity in all its complexity and vulnerability, with unflinching honesty and in vivid and evocative prose. This stunning book has received stand-out reviews – the Financial Times described it as: ‘Truly heart-stopping writing: a unique and hard-won perspective unfolded in lucid and unforgettable prose” and it is soon to be a BBC Book of the Week. Congratulations to Howard for his achievement, and I look forward to raising a glass tonight!
