Authors’ Club Lunch
Tuesday 27 May, 12.30 for 1pm in the Lady Violet Room, National Liberal Club,
1 Whitehall Place, London SW1
‘An award-winning novelist who would make a good serial killer’ – Time Out
Christopher Fowler is the award-winning author of over 30 novels and 12 short story collections. His latest books are The Bleeding Heart, the latest of his Bryant & May mystery novels, which record the adventures of two Golden Age detectives investigating impossible London crimes, and the memoir Film Freak.
A self-confessed movie obsessive, Fowler spent many years working in film, creating movie posters, trailers and documentaries. At the age of 26, he founded the Creative Partnership, a company that changed the face of film marketing. He has handled films such as Reservoir Dogs, Trainspotting, Goldeneye, Moulin Rouge and 28 Weeks Later, and worked with Mike Leigh, Martin Campbell and Peter Greenaway, and on countless Hollywood blockbusters.
He has written for everyone from Kenneth Williams to Michael Caine, the Spice Girls, Pierce Brosnan, Julie Walters, John Cleese and Eric Idle. He has scripted comedy and drama for the BBC, including Radio One’s first live broadcast drama in 2005, and has a weekly column in The Independent On Sunday called ‘Invisible Ink’.
Christopher has achieved several pathetic schoolboy fantasies, releasing a really horrible Christmas pop single, working as a male model, writing two London stage shows, posing as the villain in a Batman graphic novel Man-Bat, running a Soho night club, appearing in the Pan Books of Horror, and standing in for James Bond. After living in France and the USA he now lives in King’s Cross, London and Barcelona.
