Julia Blackburn’s biography of John Craske, a forgotten fisherman artist who was once fêted by John Betjeman and Sylvia Townsend Warner, has been a huge critical success and a favourite among many of us here at Sandoe’s. Julia has made of his strange story a book of real beauty, teasing out the details of his life and weaving them together with elements of her own in her very characteristic way. She will be talking about Craske and her distinctive approach to biography – at once personal and elliptical.
Originally scheduled for September but cancelled, we are very glad to prise Julia away from working on her new book and from her teaching for Faber & Faber.
