William Boyd's first ever collection of non-fiction is a substantial volume of writings from the last three decades that range widely over his particular interests and obsessions. "Bamboo" gathers together Boyd's writing on literature, art, the movie business, television, people he has met, places he has visited and autobiographical reflections on his African childhood, his years at boarding school and the profession of novelist. From Pablo Picasso to the allure of the British Caff, from Charles Dickesn to Catherine Deneuve, from mini-cabs to Brideshead Revisted, this collection proves a fascinating and surprisingly revealing companion to the work of one of Britain's leading novelists.
